STRINGSTRING
ARE2 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"ARE2" - Acyl-CoA:sterol acyltransferase, isozyme of Are1p 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

ARE2Acyl-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)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
LRO1
Acyltransferase 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)
       
 
  0.982
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)

YEH2
Steryl ester hydrolase, catalyzes steryl ester hydrolysis at the plasma membrane; involved in sterol metabolism; Mediates the hydrolysis of steryl esters. Required for mobilization of steryl ester, thereby playing a central role in lipid metabolism (538 aa)
     
 
  0.970
YEH1
Steryl ester hydrolase, one of three gene products (Yeh1p, Yeh2p, Tgl1p) responsible for steryl ester hydrolase activity and involved in sterol homeostasis; localized to lipid particle membranes; Mediates the hydrolysis of steryl esters, thereby playing a central role in lipid metabolism. Under heme-deficient conditions, it constitutes the major steryl ester hydrolase, suggesting that it plays a central role in mobilization of steryl esters under anaerobic conditions (573 aa)
     
 
  0.964
TGL1
Steryl ester hydrolase, one of three gene products (Yeh1p, Yeh2p, Tgl1p) responsible for steryl ester hydrolase activity and involved in sterol homeostasis; localized to lipid particle membranes; Mediates the hydrolysis of steryl esters. Required for mobilization of steryl ester, thereby playing a central role in lipid metabolism. May have weak lipase activity toward triglycerides upon some conditions, however, the relevance of such activity is unclear in vivo (548 aa)
     
 
  0.962
ARE1
Acyl-CoA-sterol acyltransferase, isozyme of Are2p; endoplasmic reticulum enzyme that contributes the major sterol esterification activity in the absence of oxygen (610 aa)
       
0.929
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)
     
   
  0.835
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)
     
 
  0.822
BAR1
Aspartyl protease secreted into the periplasmic space of mating type a cells, helps cells find mating partners, cleaves and inactivates alpha factor allowing cells to recover from alpha-factor-induced cell cycle arrest; This protein called "barrier activity" is excreted by yeast cells mating type a. It is probably a protease that cleaves alpha-factor and thus acts as an antagonist of this mating pheromone and establishes optimal pheromone concentration for conjugation (587 aa)
       
 
  0.796
DGK1
Diacylglycerol kinase, localized to the endoplasmic reticulum (ER); overproduction induces enlargement of ER-like membrane structures and suppresses a temperature-sensitive sly1 mutation; contains a CTP transferase domain; Involved in pre-tRNA splicing (By similarity). CTP- dependent diacylglycerol kinase that catalyzes the phosphorylation of diacylglycerol (DAG) to phosphatidate (PA). Controls phosphatidate levels at the nuclear envelope. Counteracts the activity of PAH1/SMP2. Involved in the resistance to nickel chloride and nalidixic acid. May be involved in vesicle trafficking betw [...] (290 aa)
