STRINGSTRING
KEX2 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"KEX2" - Kexin, a subtilisin-like protease (proprotein convertase) in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Nodes:
Network nodes represent proteins
splice isoforms or post-translational modifications are collapsed, i.e. each node represents all the proteins produced by a single, protein-coding gene locus.
Node Color
colored nodes:
query proteins and first shell of interactors
white nodes:
second shell of interactors
Node Content
empty nodes:
proteins of unknown 3D structure
filled nodes:
some 3D structure is known or predicted
Edges:
Edges represent protein-protein associations
associations are meant to be specific and meaningful, i.e. proteins jointly contribute to a shared function; this does not necessarily mean they are physically binding each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

KEX2Kexin, a subtilisin-like protease (proprotein convertase); a calcium-dependent serine protease involved in the activation of proproteins of the secretory pathway; Belongs to the peptidase S8 family. Furin subfamily (814 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
KEX1
Pheromone-processing carboxypeptidase KEX1; Cell death protease essential for hypochlorite-induced apoptosis; involved in the processing of killer toxin and alpha factor precursor; cleaves Lys and Arg residues from the C-terminus of peptides and proteins (729 aa)
     
 
  0.999
YPS1
Aspartic proteinase 3; Aspartic protease; hyperglycosylated member of the yapsin family of proteases, attached to the plasma membrane via a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchor; involved in nutrient limitation-induced cleavage of the extracellular inhibitory domain of signaling mucin Msb2p, resulting in activation of the filamentous growth MAPK pathway; involved with other yapsins in the cell wall integrity response; role in KEX2-independent processing of the alpha factor precursor (569 aa)
     
 
  0.978
STE13
Dipeptidyl aminopeptidase; Golgi integral membrane protein that cleaves on the carboxyl side of repeating -X-Ala- sequences, required for maturation of alpha factor, transcription is induced by a-factor (931 aa)
   
   
  0.969
KAR2
78 kDa glucose-regulated protein homolog; ATPase involved in protein import into the ER; also acts as a chaperone to mediate protein folding in the ER and may play a role in ER export of soluble proteins; regulates the unfolded protein response via interaction with Ire1p (682 aa)
     
 
  0.959
MF(ALPHA)1
Mating pheromone alpha-factor, made by alpha cells; interacts with mating type a cells to induce cell cycle arrest and other responses leading to mating; also encoded by MF(ALPHA)2, although MF(ALPHA)1 produces most alpha-factor; binds copper(II) ions (165 aa)
           
  0.934
MKC7
Aspartic proteinase MKC7; GPI-anchored aspartyl protease; member of the yapsin family of proteases involved in cell wall growth and maintenance; shares functions with Yap3p and Kex2p; MKC7 has a paralog, YPS1, that arose from the whole genome duplication (596 aa)
     
 
  0.928
PEP1
Vacuolar protein sorting/targeting protein VPS10; Type I transmembrane sorting receptor for multiple vacuolar hydrolases; cycles between the late-Golgi and prevacuolar endosome-like compartments; Belongs to the VPS10-related sortilin family (1579 aa)
     
 
  0.927
SEC61
Conserved ER protein translocation channel; essential subunit of Sec61 complex (Sec61p, Sbh1p, and Sss1p); forms channel for SRP-dependent protein import; with Sec63 complex allows SRP-independent protein import into ER; involved in posttranslational soluble protein import into the ER, ERAD of soluble substrates, and misfolded soluble protein export from the ER (480 aa)
     
   
  0.922
SEC7
Protein transport protein SEC7; Guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) for ADP ribosylation factors; involved in proliferation of the Golgi, intra-Golgi transport and ER-to-Golgi transport; found in the cytoplasm and on Golgi-associated coated vesicles (2009 aa)
     
 
  0.918
ERD2
ER lumen protein-retaining receptor; HDEL receptor; an integral membrane protein that binds to the HDEL motif in proteins destined for retention in the endoplasmic reticulum; has a role in maintenance of normal levels of ER-resident proteins (219 aa)
     
   
  0.917
