STRINGSTRING
CLA4 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"CLA4" - Cdc42p-activated signal transducing kinase of the PAK (p21-activated kinase) family, along with Ste20p and Skm1p 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

CLA4Cdc42p-activated signal transducing kinase of the PAK (p21-activated kinase) family, along with Ste20p and Skm1p; involved in septin ring assembly, vacuole inheritance, cytokinesis, sterol uptake regulation; phosphorylates Cdc3p and Cdc10p; Involved in budding and cytokinesis (842 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
CDC42
Small rho-like GTPase, essential for establishment and maintenance of cell polarity; mutants have defects in the organization of actin and septins; Involved in development of cell polarity during the cell division cycle, and essential for bud emergence. Affects signaling in the pheromone-response pathway through the STE20 protein kinase. Negatively regulated by the GTPase-activating proteins RGA1, BEM3, and BEM4 (191 aa)
       
  0.999
BEM1
Protein containing SH3-domains, involved in establishing cell polarity and morphogenesis; functions as a scaffold protein for complexes that include Cdc24p, Ste5p, Ste20p, and Rsr1p; Necessary for cell polarization during vegetative growth. May link the cytoskeleton to morphogenic determinants on the cell surface (551 aa)
     
  0.994
CDC12
Component of the septin ring that is required for cytokinesis; septins are GTP-binding proteins that assemble into rod-like hetero-oligomers that can associate with other rods to form filaments; septin rings at the mother-bud neck act as scaffolds for recruiting cell division factors and as barriers to prevent diffusion of specific proteins between mother and daughter cells; Septins are GTPases involved in cytokinesis that assemble early in the cell cycle as a patch at the incipient bud site and form a ring approximate 15 minutes before bud emergence, which transforms into an hour-glas [...] (407 aa)
     
 
  0.978
RHO1
GTP-binding protein of the rho subfamily of Ras-like proteins, involved in establishment of cell polarity; regulates protein kinase C (Pkc1p) and the cell wall synthesizing enzyme 1,3-beta-glucan synthase (Fks1p and Gsc2p); Acts as a central regulator in the cell wall integrity signaling pathway, which is regulated by the cell cycle and in response to various types of cell wall stress. Integrates signals from different cell surface sensors, and activates a set of effectors, regulating processes including beta-glucan synthesis at the site of wall remodeling, gene expression related to c [...] (209 aa)
       
  0.973
STE11
Signal transducing MEK kinase involved in pheromone response and pseudohyphal/invasive growth pathways where it phosphorylates Ste7p, and the high osmolarity response pathway, via phosphorylation of Pbs2p; regulated by Ste20p and Ste50p; Serine/threonine protein kinase required for cell-type- specific transcription and signal transduction in yeast. It is thought that it phosphorylates the STE7 protein kinase which itself, phosphorylates the FUS3 and or KSS1 kinases (717 aa)
       
0.973
CDC24
Guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF or GDP-release factor) for Cdc42p; required for polarity establishment and maintenance, and mutants have morphological defects in bud formation and shmooing; Promotes the exchange of CDC42-bound GDP by GTP. Controls the polarity of calmodulin, and the calcium regulatory process of bud emergence. CDC24 may be involved in the initial selection and organization of the budding site (854 aa)
       
 
  0.968
RHO5
Non-essential small GTPase of the Rho/Rac subfamily of Ras-like proteins, likely involved in protein kinase C (Pkc1p)-dependent signal transduction pathway that controls cell integrity; Negatively regulates a MAP kinase branch, downstream of SLT2, of the PKC1-mediated signal transduction pathway (331 aa)
       
  0.968
STE20
Cdc42p-activated signal transducing kinase of the PAK (p21-activated kinase) family; involved in pheromone response, pseudohyphal/invasive growth, vacuole inheritance, down-regulation of sterol uptake; GBB motif binds Ste4p; MAP4K component of the MAPK pathway required for the mating pheromone response, haploid invasive growth and diploid pseudohyphal development. Links the pheromone response G-protein beta gamma subunits to downstream signaling components. Needed for mating in haploid cells, induction of a mating-specific gene FUS1, induction of mating-specific morphologies, and phero [...] (939 aa)
       
0.966
RSR1
GTP-binding protein of the ras superfamily required for bud site selection, morphological changes in response to mating pheromone, and efficient cell fusion; localized to the plasma membrane; significantly similar to mammalian Rap GTPases; Involved in development of cell polarity during the cell division cycle, and essential for bud emergence. RSR1 and CDC24 interact functionally and perhaps physically (272 aa)
     
  0.958
STE4
G protein beta subunit, forms a dimer with Ste18p to activate the mating signaling pathway, forms a heterotrimer with Gpa1p and Ste18p to dampen signaling; may recruit Rho1p to the polarized growth site during mating; contains WD40 repeats; Implicated in the a- and alpha-factor response pathway. The beta and gamma chains of the putative yeast mating response pathway G protein play a positive role in initiation of the mating response. The beta and gamma chains are required for the GTPase activity, for replacement of GDP by GTP, and for G protein- effector interaction (423 aa)
