MET22 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"MET22" - Bisphosphate-3'-nucleotidase, involved in salt tolerance and methionine biogenesis in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
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 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
protein homology

Gene Fusion
MET22Bisphosphate-3’-nucleotidase, involved in salt tolerance and methionine biogenesis; dephosphorylates 3’-phosphoadenosine-5’-phosphate and 3’-phosphoadenosine-5’-phosphosulfate, intermediates of the sulfate assimilation pathway; Converts adenosine 3’-phosphate 5’-phosphosulfate (PAPS) to adenosine 5’-phosphosulfate (APS) and 3’(2’)-phosphoadenosine 5’- phosphate (PAP) to AMP. Regulates the flux of sulfur in the sulfur-activation pathway by converting PAPS to APS. Involved in salt tolerance. Confers resistance to lithium (357 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
3’-phosphoadenylsulfate reductase, reduces 3’-phosphoadenylyl sulfate to adenosine-3’,5’-bisphosphate and free sulfite using reduced thioredoxin as cosubstrate, involved in sulfate assimilation and methionine metabolism; The NADP dependent reduction of PAPS into sulfite involves thioredoxin which probably plays the role of a thiol carrier (261 aa)
ATP sulfurylase, catalyzes the primary step of intracellular sulfate activation, essential for assimilatory reduction of sulfate to sulfide, involved in methionine metabolism; Catalyzes the first intracellular reaction of sulfate assimilation, forming adenosine-5’-phosphosulfate (APS) from inorganic sulfate and ATP. Plays an important role in sulfate activation as a component of the biosynthesis pathway of sulfur- containing amino acids (511 aa)
Adenylylsulfate kinase, required for sulfate assimilation and involved in methionine metabolism; Catalyzes the synthesis of activated sulfate (202 aa)
Pyrimidine nucleotidase; overexpression suppresses the 6-AU sensitivity of transcription elongation factor S-II, as well as resistance to other pyrimidine derivatives; Could be an enzyme that inactivates 6-azauracil by modifying it (280 aa)
Diadenosine 5’,5’’-P1,P4-tetraphosphate phosphorylase I (AP4A phosphorylase), involved in catabolism of bis(5’-nucleosidyl) tetraphosphates; has similarity to Apa2p; Ap4A phosphorylase catalyzes the phosphorolytic degradation of bis(5’-adenosyl) tetraphosphate (Ap4A) into ADP and ATP. Can also use other Np4N’ nucleotides (where N and N’ stand for A,C,G or U) as substrates with equal efficiency. Cannot catalyze the reverse reaction. Additionally, this enzyme can also catalyze the phosphorolytic degradation of adenosine 5’- phosphosulfate (AMPS) into ADP and sulfate, the reversible excha [...] (321 aa)
Inositol-3-phosphate synthase, involved in synthesis of inositol phosphates and inositol-containing phospholipids; transcription is coregulated with other phospholipid biosynthetic genes by Ino2p and Ino4p, which bind the UASINO DNA element (533 aa)
Cytoplasmic protein involved in halotolerance; decreases intracellular Na+ (via Ena1p) and increases intracellular K+ by decreasing efflux; expression repressed by Ssn6p-Tup1p and Sko1p and induced by NaCl, KCl, and sorbitol through Gcn4p; Involved in salt tolerance (294 aa)
tRNA(Ser) Um(44) 2’-O-methyltransferase; involved in maintaining levels of the tRNA-Ser species tS(CGA) and tS(UGA); conserved among metazoans and fungi but there does not appear to be a homolog in plants; TRM44 is a non-essential gene; tRNA (uracil-O(2)-)-methyltransferase, which catalyzes the formation of O(2)-methyluracil at position 44 (Um44) in tRNA(Ser) (567 aa)
S-adenosyl-L-methionine uroporphyrinogen III transmethylase, involved in the biosynthesis of siroheme, a prosthetic group used by sulfite reductase; required for sulfate assimilation and methionine biosynthesis; Siroheme synthase involved in methionine biosynthesis (593 aa)
Evolutionarily-conserved 5’-3’ exonuclease component of cytoplasmic processing (P) bodies involved in mRNA decay; plays a role in microtubule-mediated processes, filamentous growth, ribosomal RNA maturation, and telomere maintenance; Multifunctional protein that exhibits several independent functions at different levels of the cellular processes. 5’-3’ exonuclease component of the nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD) which is a highly conserved mRNA degradation pathway, an RNA surveillance system whose role is to identify and rid cells of mRNA with premature termination codons and thus p [...] (1528 aa)
