STRINGSTRING
LRO1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"LRO1" - Acyltransferase that catalyzes diacylglycerol esterification 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

LRO1Acyltransferase that catalyzes diacylglycerol esterification; one of several acyltransferases that contribute to triglyceride synthesis; putative homolog of human lecithin cholesterol acyltransferase; Triacylglycerol formation by an acyl-CoA independent pathway. The enzyme specifically transfers acyl groups from the sn-2 position of a phospholipid to diacylglycerol, thus forming an sn-1-lysophospholipid (661 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
DGA1
Diacylglycerol acyltransferase, catalyzes the terminal step of triacylglycerol (TAG) formation, acylates diacylglycerol using acyl-CoA as an acyl donor, localized to lipid particles; Catalyzes the terminal and only committed step in triacylglycerol synthesis by using diacylglycerol and fatty acyl CoA as substrates. Required for storage lipid synthesis. May be involved in lipid particle synthesis from the endoplasmic reticulum and ergosterol biosynthesis. Also has monoacylglycerol acyltransferase (MGAT) activity, catalyzing the acyl-CoA-dependent esterification of monoacylglycerol to di [...] (418 aa)

TGL3
Bifunctional enzyme with triacylglycerol lipase and lysophosphatidylethanolamine acyltransferase activity; responsible for all the triacylglycerol lipase activity of the lipid particle; required with Tgl4p for timely bud formation; Releases specific fatty acids from neutral lipid triacylglycerols (TAG) thereby supplying fatty acids to a general acylation process (642 aa)
     
 
  0.993
TGL4
Multifunctional triacylglycerol lipase, steryl ester hydrolase, and Ca2+-independent phospholipase A2; catalyzes acyl-CoA dependent acylation of LPA to PA; required with Tgl3p for timely bud formation; phosphorylated and activated by Cdc28p; Releases specific fatty acids from neutral lipid triacylglycerols (TAG) thereby supplying fatty acids to a general acylation process. May have a specific role in sporulation (910 aa)

PAH1
Mg<sup>2+</sup>-dependent phosphatidate (PA) phosphatase, catalyzes the dephosphorylation of PA to yield diacylglycerol, responsible for de novo lipid synthesis and formation of lipid droplets; homologous to mammalian lipin 1; Mg(2+)-dependent phosphatidate (PA) phosphatase which catalyzes the dephosphorylation of PA to yield diacylglycerol. Required for de novo lipid synthesis and formation of lipid droplets. Controles transcription of phospholipid biosynthetic genes and nuclear structure by regulating the amount of membrane present at the nuclear envelope. Involved in plasmid mainten [...] (862 aa)
       
  0.983
ALE1
Broad-specificity lysophospholipid acyltransferase, part of MBOAT family of membrane-bound O-acyltransferases; key component of Lands cycle; may have role in fatty acid exchange at sn-2 position of mature glycerophospholipids; Membrane-bound O-acyltransferase that mediates the incorporation of unsaturated acyl chains into the sn-2 position of phospholipids. Preferentially acylates lysophosphocholine, but also lysophosphoethanolamine and lysophosphatidylglycerol (619 aa)
         
  0.982
ARE2
Acyl-CoA-sterol acyltransferase, isozyme of Are1p; endoplasmic reticulum enzyme that contributes the major sterol esterification activity in the presence of oxygen; Ensures probably most of the acyltransferase activity. Suppression of ARE2 reduces sterol ester levels to 25% of the normal value (642 aa)
       
 
  0.982
LPP1
Lipid phosphate phosphatase, catalyzes Mg(2+)-independent dephosphorylation of phosphatidic acid (PA), lysophosphatidic acid, and diacylglycerol pyrophosphate; involved in control of the cellular levels of phosphatidylinositol and PA; Catalyzes the dephosphorylation of diacylglycerol phosphate (DGPP) to phosphatidate (PA) and the subsequent dephosphorylation of PA to diacylglycerol (DAG). Together with DPP1, regulates intracellular DGPP and PA levels which are phospholipid molecules believed to play a signaling role in stress response. Can also use lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) as a subs [...] (274 aa)

DPP1
Diacylglycerol pyrophosphate (DGPP) phosphatase, zinc-regulated vacuolar membrane-associated lipid phosphatase, dephosphorylates DGPP to phosphatidate (PA) and Pi, then PA to diacylglycerol; involved in lipid signaling and cell metabolism; Catalyzes the dephosphorylation of diacylglycerol diphosphate (DGPP) to phosphatidate (PA) and the subsequent dephosphorylation of PA to diacylglycerol (DAG). Together with LPP1, regulates intracellular DGPP and PA levels, which are phospholipid molecules believed to play a signaling role in stress response.
