STRING protein interaction network
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 to each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
AUS1Atp-binding cassette, subfamily g (white), member 2, snq2; ATP-dependent permease AUS1; Plasma membrane sterol transporter of the ATP-binding cassette family; required, along with Pdr11p, for uptake of exogenous sterols and their incorporation into the plasma membrane; activity is stimulated by phosphatidylserine; sterol uptake is required for anaerobic growth because sterol biosynthesis requires oxygen; AUS1 has a paralog, PDR11, that arose from the whole genome duplication (1394 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Cell wall mannoprotein; expressed under anaerobic conditions and required for anaerobic growth; transcription is also induced by cold shock; member of the Srp1p/Tip1p family of serine-alanine-rich proteins
Cell wall mannoprotein; has similarity to Tir1p, Tir2p, Tir3p, and Tir4p; expressed under anaerobic conditions, completely repressed during aerobic growth
Sterol uptake control protein 2; Sterol regulatory element binding protein; induces sterol biosynthetic genes, upon sterol depletion; acts as a sterol sensor, binding ergosterol in sterol rich conditions; relocates from intracellular membranes to perinuclear foci upon sterol depletion; redundant activator of filamentation with ECM22, up-regulating the expression of filamentous growth genes; contains a Zn[2]-Cys[6] binuclear cluster; UPC2 has a paralog, ECM22, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Phosphatidylglycerol/phosphatidylinositol transfer protein; Sterol transport protein and functional homolog of human NPC2/He1; human NPC2 is a cholesterol-binding protein whose deficiency causes Niemann-Pick type C2 disease involving retention of cholesterol in lysosomes; yeast NPC2 can complement mutations in human NPC2; Belongs to the NPC2 family
Cell wall mannoprotein; member of Srp1p/Tip1p family of serine-alanine-rich proteins; expressed under anaerobic conditions and required for anaerobic growth; TIR3 has a paralog, TIR2, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Oligomycin resistance ATP-dependent permease YOR1; Plasma membrane ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter; multidrug transporter mediates export of many different organic anions including oligomycin; homolog of human cystic fibrosis transmembrane receptor (CFTR); Belongs to the ABC transporter superfamily. ABCC family. Conjugate transporter (TC 3.A.1.208) subfamily
Pre-mRNA-splicing factor URN1; Protein of unknown function containing WW and FF domains; overexpression causes accumulation of cells in G1 phase
ATP-dependent bile acid permease; Transporter of the ATP-binding cassette (ABC) family; involved in bile acid transport; negative regulator of vacuole fusion; regulates release of lumenal Ca2+ stores; similar to mammalian bile transporters; YBT1 has a paralog, VMR1, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Sterol O-acyltransferase 2; Acyl-CoA:sterol acyltransferase; endoplasmic reticulum enzyme that contributes the major sterol esterification activity in the presence of oxygen; ARE2 has a paralog, ARE1, that arose from the whole genome duplication; Belongs to the membrane-bound acyltransferase family. Sterol o-acyltransferase subfamily
Atp-binding cassette, subfamily g (white), member 2, snq2; ATP-dependent permease PDR11; ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter; multidrug transporter involved in multiple drug resistance; mediates sterol uptake when sterol biosynthesis is compromised; regulated by Pdr1p; required for anaerobic growth; PDR11 has a paralog, AUS1, that arose from the whole genome duplication
