STRINGSTRING
SEC2 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"SEC2" - Guanyl-nucleotide exchange factor for the small G-protein Sec4p 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

SEC2Guanyl-nucleotide exchange factor for the small G-protein Sec4p; essential for post-Golgi vesicle transport and for autophagy; associates with the exocyst, via exocyst subunit Sec15p, on secretory vesicles; Guanine nucleotide exchange factor for SEC4, catalyzing the dissociation of GDP from SEC4 and also potently promoting binding of GTP. Activation of SEC4 by SEC2 is needed for the directed transport of vesicles to sites of exocytosis. Binds the Rab GTPase YPT32, but does not have exhange activity on YPT32 (759 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
SEC4
Rab family GTPase essential for vesicle-mediated exocytic secretion and autophagy; associates with the exocyst component Sec15p and may regulate polarized delivery of transport vesicles to the exocyst at the plasma membrane; Involved in exocytosis. Maybe by regulating the binding and fusion of secretory vesicles with the cell surface. The GTP- bound form of SEC4 may interact with an effector, thereby stimulating its activity and leading to exocytotic fusion. SEC4 may be an upstream activator of the 19.5S SEC8/SEC15 particle. SEC4 probably interacts directly with SEC8; it could serve as [...] (215 aa)

YPT32
Rab family GTPase, very similar to Ypt31p; involved in the exocytic pathway; mediates intra-Golgi traffic or the budding of post-Golgi vesicles from the trans-Golgi; Required for protein transport through the secretory pathway. Probably involved in regulation of secretory vesicle formation at the trans-Golgi compartment. Mediates the proper polarized localization of SEC2, a GEF for SEC4, but does not alter the exchange activity of SEC2 on SEC4. Plays a role in autophagy (222 aa)
       
 
  0.981
SEC15
Essential 113kDa subunit of the exocyst complex (Sec3p, Sec5p, Sec6p, Sec8p, Sec10p, Sec15p, Exo70p, and Exo84p), which mediates polarized targeting of vesicles to active sites of exocytosis; Sec15p associates with Sec4p and vesicles; Component of the exocyst complex involved in the docking of exocytic vesicles with fusion sites on the plasma membrane (910 aa)
       
 
  0.976
YPT31
Rab family GTPase, very similar to Ypt32p; involved in the exocytic pathway; mediates intra-Golgi traffic or the budding of post-Golgi vesicles from the trans-Golgi; Required for protein transport in the secretory pathway. Probably involved in regulation of secretory vesicle formation at the trans-Golgi compartment. Plays a role in autophagy (223 aa)
       
 
  0.970
URA2
Bifunctional carbamoylphosphate synthetase/aspartate transcarbamylase; catalyzes the first two enzymatic steps in the de novo biosynthesis of pyrimidines; both activities are subject to feedback inhibition by UTP; This protein is a "fusion" protein encoding three enzymatic activities of the pyrimidine pathway (GATase, CPSase, and ATCase) (2214 aa)
     
      0.961
SEC8
Essential 121kDa subunit of the exocyst complex (Sec3p, Sec5p, Sec6p, Sec8p, Sec10p, Sec15p, Exo70p, and Exo84p), which has the essential function of mediating polarized targeting of secretory vesicles to active sites of exocytosis; Component of the exocyst complex involved in the docking of exocytic vesicles with fusion sites on the plasma membrane (1065 aa)
       
 
  0.911
SEC10
Essential 100kDa subunit of the exocyst complex; the exocyst mediates polarized targeting and tethering of post-Golgi secretory vesicles to active sites of exocytosis at the plasma membrane prior to SNARE-mediated fusion; Component of the exocyst complex involved in the docking of exocytic vesicles with fusion sites on the plasma membrane (871 aa)
       
 
  0.908
SEC3
Subunit of the exocyst complex (Sec3p, Sec5p, Sec6p, Sec8p, Sec10p, Sec15p, Exo70p, Exo84p) which mediates targeting of post-Golgi vesicles to sites of active exocytosis; Sec3p specifically is a spatial landmark for secretion; Component of the exocyst complex involved in the docking of exocytic vesicles with fusion sites on the plasma membrane (1336 aa)
       
 
  0.906
SEC5
Essential 107kDa subunit of the exocyst complex (Sec3p, Sec5p, Sec6p, Sec8p, Sec10p, Sec15p, Exo70p, and Exo84p), which has the essential function of mediating polarized targeting of secretory vesicles to active sites of exocytosis; Component of the exocyst complex involved in the docking of exocytic vesicles with fusion sites on the plasma membrane (971 aa)
       
 
  0.905
SEC1
Sm-like protein involved in docking and fusion of exocytic vesicles; binds to assembled SNARE complexes at the membrane and stimulates membrane fusion; localization to sites of secretion (bud neck and bud tip) is dependent on SNARE function; Involved in the final stage of protein secretion (724 aa)
