STRINGSTRING
WSC2 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"WSC2" - Partially redundant sensor-transducer of the stress-activated PKC1-MPK1 signaling pathway involved in maintenance of cell wall integrity and recovery from heat shock 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

WSC2Partially redundant sensor-transducer of the stress-activated PKC1-MPK1 signaling pathway involved in maintenance of cell wall integrity and recovery from heat shock; secretory pathway Wsc2p is required for the arrest of secretion response (503 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
ROM2
GDP/GTP exchange factor (GEF) for Rho1p and Rho2p; mutations are synthetically lethal with mutations in rom1, which also encodes a GEF; Stimulates the exchange of RHO1 GDP-bound form into GTP- bound form (1356 aa)

WSC3
Partially redundant sensor-transducer of the stress-activated PKC1-MPK1 signaling pathway involved in maintenance of cell wall integrity; involved in the response to heat shock and other stressors; regulates 1,3-beta-glucan synthesis (556 aa)
       
0.963
SHE2
RNA-binding protein that binds specific mRNAs and interacts with She3p; part of the mRNA localization machinery that restricts accumulation of certain proteins to the bud; RNA-binding protein that binds specific mRNAs including the ASH1 mRNA, coding for a repressor of the HO endonuclease. Part of the mRNA localization machinery that restricts accumulation of certain proteins to the bud and in the daughter cell. Recruits the MYO4-SHE3 complex to the ASH1 mRNA. Recruits also LOC1 and PUF6 to ASH1 mRNA, which are required for translational repression of this mRNA (246 aa)

MID2
O-glycosylated plasma membrane protein that acts as a sensor for cell wall integrity signaling and activates the pathway; interacts with Rom2p, a guanine nucleotide exchange factor for Rho1p, and with cell integrity pathway protein Zeo1p; Cell wall stress sensor. Involved in activation of a response that includes both stress-related increased chitin synthesis and the MPK1 mitogen-activated protein kinase cell integrity pathway. High-copy activator of the SKN7 transcription factor. Required during induction of MPK1 tyrosine phosphorylation under a variety of stress conditions. Required [...] (376 aa)

YGL108C
Protein of unknown function, predicted to be palmitoylated; green fluorescent protein (GFP)-fusion protein localizes to the cell periphery (140 aa)
       
      0.798
BCK1
Mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase kinase kinase acting in the protein kinase C signaling pathway, which controls cell integrity; upon activation by Pkc1p phosphorylates downstream kinases Mkk1p and Mkk2p; Serine/threonine protein kinase involved in a signal transduction pathway that plays a role in yeast cell morphogenesis and cell growth. This pathway seems to start by SMP3; then involve the kinase PKC1 that may act on this kinase. BCK1 probably phosphorylates MKK1 and MKK2 which themselves phosphorylate the MPK1 kinase (1478 aa)
