LPL1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"LPL1" - Lipid particle protein of unknown function 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
LPL1Lipid particle protein of unknown function; contains a putative lipase serine active site; induced by transcription factor RPN4 (450 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Putative protein of unknown function; identified by fungal homology and RT-PCR (51 aa)
Possible U3 snoRNP protein involved in maturation of pre-18S rRNA, based on computational analysis of large-scale protein-protein interaction data; Involved in nucleolar processing of pre-18S ribosomal RNA and ribosome assembly (594 aa)
Putative protein of unknown function; green fluorescent protein (GFP)-fusion protein localizes to the cytoplasm and is induced in response to the DNA-damaging agent MMS (304 aa)
Bifunctional enzyme with triacylglycerol lipase and lysophosphatidylethanolamine acyltransferase activity; responsible for all the triacylglycerol lipase activity of the lipid particle; required with Tgl4p for timely bud formation; Releases specific fatty acids from neutral lipid triacylglycerols (TAG) thereby supplying fatty acids to a general acylation process (642 aa)
Monoglyceride lipase (MGL), functional ortholog of mammalian MGL, localizes to lipid particles and membranes, also member of the eukaryotic serine hydrolase family; Converts monoacylglycerides (MAG) to free fatty acids and glycerol. Required for efficient degradation of MAG, short- lived intermediates of glycerolipid metabolism which may also function as lipid signaling molecules. Controls inactivation of the signaling lipid N-palmitoylethanolamine (PEA) (313 aa)
Putative protein of unknown function (687 aa)
Acyl-coenzymeA-ethanol O-acyltransferase that plays a minor role in medium-chain fatty acid ethyl ester biosynthesis; possesses short-chain esterase activity; localizes to lipid particles and the mitochondrial outer membrane; Displays enzymatic activity both for medium-chain fatty acid (MCFA) ethyl ester synthesis and hydrolysis (esterase activity). MCFA are toxic for yeast and this enzyme could thus be involved in their detoxification by esterification (451 aa)
Serine hydrolase; exhibits active esterase plus weak triacylglycerol lipase activities; proposed role in lipid homeostasis, regulating phospholipid and non-polar lipid levels and required for mobilization of LD-stored lipids; localizes to the lipid /.../t (LD) surface; contains a classical serine containing catalytic triad (GxSxG motif); Serine hydrolase required for the maintenance of steady state level of non-polar and polar lipids of lipid droplets and thus plays a role in maintaining the lipids homeostasis. Exhibits both esterase and triacylglycerol lipase activity (375 aa)
Very long chain fatty acyl-CoA synthetase and fatty acid transporter; activates imported fatty acids with a preference for very long lengths (C20-C26); has a separate function in the transport of long chain fatty acids; May be involved in long-chain fatty acids uptake, and thus may play a pivotal role in regulating their accessibility prior to metabolic utilization. May play an important role in uptake of these hydrophobic compounds under conditions where fatty acid synthesis is compromised (669 aa)
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)
