STRINGSTRING
ESC8 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"ESC8" - Protein involved in telomeric and mating-type locus silencing, interacts with Sir2p and also interacts with the Gal11p, which is a component of the RNA pol II mediator complex 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

ESC8Protein involved in telomeric and mating-type locus silencing, interacts with Sir2p and also interacts with the Gal11p, which is a component of the RNA pol II mediator complex; Involved in HMR and telomere silencing via the recruitment or stabilizing of the SIR (silent information regulators) complex (714 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
SIR2
Conserved NAD+ dependent histone deacetylase of the Sirtuin family involved in regulation of lifespan; plays roles in silencing at HML, HMR, telomeres, and the rDNA locus; negatively regulates initiation of DNA replication; NAD-dependent deacetylase, which participates in a wide range of cellular events including chromosome silencing, chromosome segregation, DNA recombination and the determination of life span. Involved in transcriptional repression of the silent mating-type loci HML and HMR and telomeric silencing via its association with SIR3 and SIR4. Plays a central role in ribosom [...] (562 aa)

ISW1
Member of the imitation-switch (ISWI) class of ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling complexes; ATPase that forms a complex with Ioc2p and Ioc4p to regulate transcription elongation, and a complex with Ioc3p to repress transcription initiation; Catalytic component of ISW1-type complexes, which act by remodeling the chromatin by catalyzing an ATP-dependent alteration in the structure of nucleosomal DNA. They are involved in coordinating transcriptional repression, activation and elongation phases. The ISW1A complex represses gene expression at initiation through specific positioning of a p [...] (1129 aa)

RLF2
Largest subunit (p90) of the Chromatin Assembly Complex (CAF-1); chromatin assembly by CAF-1 is important for multiple processes including silencing at telomeres, mating type loci, and rDNA; maintenance of kinetochore structure; deactivation of the /.../mage checkpoint after DNA repair; and chromatin dynamics during transcription; Acts as a component of chromatin assembly factor 1 (CAF- 1), which assembles histone octamers onto replicating DNA in vitro. It performs the first step of the nucleosome assembly process, bringing newly synthesized histones H3 and H4 to replicating DNA; hist [...] (606 aa)

IOC2
Member of a complex (Isw1b) with Isw1p and Ioc4p that exhibits nucleosome-stimulated ATPase activity and acts within coding regions to coordinate transcription elongation with termination and processing, contains a PHD finger motif; Functions as component of the ISW1B complex, which acts in remodeling the chromatin by catalyzing an ATP-dependent alteration in the structure of nucleosomal DNA. The ISW1B complex acts within coding regions to control the amount of RNA polymerase II released into productive elongation and to coordinate elongation with termination and pre-mRNA processing (812 aa)
       
 
  0.786
IOC3
Member of a complex (Isw1a) with Isw1p that has nucleosome-stimulated ATPase activity and represses transcription initiation by specific positioning of a promoter proximal dinucleosome; has homology to Esc8p, which is involved in silencing; Functions as component of the ISW1A complex, which acts in remodeling the chromatin by catalyzing an ATP-dependent alteration in the structure of nucleosomal DNA. The ISW1A complex represses gene expression at initiation through specific positioning of a promoter proximal dinucleosome (787 aa)

IOC4
Member of a complex (Isw1b) with Isw1p and Ioc2p that exhibits nucleosome-stimulated ATPase activity and acts within coding regions to coordinate transcription elongation with termination and processing, contains a PWWP motif; Functions as component of the ISW1B complex, which acts in remodeling the chromatin by catalyzing an ATP-dependent alteration in the structure of nucleosomal DNA. The ISW1B complex acts within coding regions to control the amount of RNA polymerase II released into productive elongation and to coordinate elongation with termination and pre-mRNA processing (475 aa)

SIR4
Silent information regulator that, together with SIR2 and SIR3, is involved in assembly of silent chromatin domains at telomeres and the silent mating-type loci; potentially phosphorylated by Cdc28p; some alleles of SIR4 prolong lifespan; The proteins SIR1 through SIR4 are required for transcriptional repression of the silent mating type loci, HML and HMR. The proteins SIR2 through SIR4 repress mulitple loci by modulating chromatin structure. Involves the compaction of chromatin fiber into a more condensed form (1358 aa)

GAL11
Subunit of the RNA polymerase II mediator complex; associates with core polymerase subunits to form the RNA polymerase II holoenzyme; affects transcription by acting as target of activators and repressors; forms part of the tail domain of mediator; Component of the Mediator complex, a coactivator involved in the regulated transcription of nearly all RNA polymerase II-dependent genes. Mediator functions as a bridge to convey information from gene-specific regulatory proteins to the basal RNA polymerase II transcription machinery. The Mediator complex, having a compact conformation in it [...] (1081 aa)
