STRINGSTRING
MSB4 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"MSB4" - GTPase-activating protein of the Ras superfamily that acts primarily on Sec4p, localizes to the bud site and bud tip, has similarity to Msb3p 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

MSB4GTPase-activating protein of the Ras superfamily that acts primarily on Sec4p, localizes to the bud site and bud tip, has similarity to Msb3p; msb3 msb4 double mutation causes defects in secretion and actin organization; Regulates exocytosis by functioning as a GAP for SEC4. Also required for efficient polarization of the actin patches (492 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
MSB3
GTPase-activating protein for Sec4p and several other Rab GTPases, regulates exocytosis via its action on Sec4p, also required for proper actin organization; similar to Msb4p; both Msb3p and Msb4p localize to sites of polarized growth; Regulates exocytosis by functioning as a GAP for SEC4. Stimulates specifically the GTPase activity of YPT6. Also required for efficient polarization of the actin patches (633 aa)

BNI1
Formin, nucleates the formation of linear actin filaments, involved in cell processes such as budding and mitotic spindle orientation which require the formation of polarized actin cables, functionally redundant with BNR1; Required for the assembly of F-actin structures, such as actin cables and stress fibers. Nucleates actin filaments. Binds to the barbed end of the actin filament and acts as leaky capper, slowing both polymerization and depolymerization. Protects the growing actin fiber from tight capping proteins and so increases the time of elongation and the total amount of F-acti [...] (1953 aa)
       
  0.955
BUD6
Actin- and formin-interacting protein; stimulates actin cable nucleation by recruiting actin monomers to Bni1p; involved in polarized cell growth; isolated as bipolar budding mutant; potential Cdc28p substrate; Not essential for mitotic growth but is necessary for normal morphogenesis. Involved in the organization and/or function of the actin cytoskeleton (788 aa)
       
  0.949
YPT1
Rab family GTPase, involved in the ER-to-Golgi step of the secretory pathway; complex formation with the Rab escort protein Mrs6p is required for prenylation of Ypt1p by protein geranylgeranyltransferase type II (Bet2p-Bet4p); The small GTPases Rab are key regulators of intracellular membrane trafficking, from the formation of transport vesicles to their fusion with membranes. Rabs cycle between an inactive GDP-bound form and an active GTP-bound form that is able to recruit to membranes different set of downstream effectors directly responsible for vesicle formation, movement, tetherin [...] (206 aa)
     
  0.946
SPA2
Component of the polarisome, which functions in actin cytoskeletal organization during polarized growth; acts as a scaffold for Mkk1p and Mpk1p cell wall integrity signaling components; potential Cdc28p substrate; Involved in pheromone-induced morphogenesis and efficient mating, perhaps as a cytoskeletal protein (1466 aa)
       
  0.942
PEA2
Coiled-coil polarisome protein required for polarized morphogenesis, cell fusion, and low affinity Ca2+ influx; forms polarisome complex with Bni1p, Bud6p, and Spa2p; localizes to sites of polarized growth; Localized to sites of polarized growth and is required for efficient mating and bipolar budding (420 aa)
       
  0.937
YPT7
Rab family GTPase; GTP-binding protein of the rab family; required for homotypic fusion event in vacuole inheritance, for endosome-endosome fusion, similar to mammalian Rab7; Needed for homotypic vacuole fusion, the last step in the vacuole inheritance process (208 aa)
       
 
  0.934
SEC4
Rab family GTPase essential for vesicle-mediated exocytic secretion and autophagy; associates with the exocyst component Sec15p and may regulate polarized delivery of transport vesicles to the exocyst at the plasma membrane; Involved in exocytosis. Maybe by regulating the binding and fusion of secretory vesicles with the cell surface. The GTP- bound form of SEC4 may interact with an effector, thereby stimulating its activity and leading to exocytotic fusion. SEC4 may be an upstream activator of the 19.5S SEC8/SEC15 particle. SEC4 probably interacts directly with SEC8; it could serve as [...] (215 aa)

YPT6
Rab family GTPase, Ras-like GTP binding protein involved in the secretory pathway, required for fusion of endosome-derived vesicles with the late Golgi, maturation of the vacuolar carboxypeptidase Y; has similarity to the human GTPase, Rab6; Protein transport. Might participate in post-Golgi transport (215 aa)

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)
