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
LPX1Peroxisomal membrane protein LPX1; Peroxisomal matrix-localized lipase; required for normal peroxisome morphology; contains a peroxisomal targeting signal type 1 (PTS1) and a lipase motif; peroxisomal import requires the PTS1 receptor, Pex5p and self-interaction; transcriptionally activated by Yrm1p along with genes involved in multidrug resistance; oleic acid inducible (387 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Glutaminyl-peptide cyclotransferase; Uncharacterized protein YFR018C; Putative protein of unknown function; SWAT-GFP and seamless GFP fusion proteins localize to the endoplasmic reticulum and mCherry fusion protein localizes to the vacuole
Uncharacterized protein YDL144C; Protein of unknown function; green fluorescent protein (GFP)-fusion protein localizes to the cytoplasm and nucleus; YDL144C is not an essential gene; protein abundance increases in response to DNA replication stress
Lipase 3; Bifunctional triacylglycerol lipase and LPE acyltransferase; major lipid particle-localized triacylglycerol (TAG) lipase; catalyzes acylation of lysophosphatidylethanolamine (LPE), a function which is essential for sporulation; protein level and stability of Tgl3p are markedly reduced in the absence of lipid droplets; required with Tgl4p for timely bud formation
Peripheral peroxisomal membrane peroxin; required for the regulation of peroxisome size and maintenance, recruits GTPase Rho1p to peroxisomes, induced by oleate, interacts with Pex27p; PEX25 has a paralog, PEX27, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Bifunctional triacylglycerol lipase and 1-acyl DHAP reductase; NADPH-dependent 1-acyl dihydroxyacetone phosphate reductase involved in phosphatidic acid biosynthesis; lipid droplet triacylglycerol lipase involved in the mobilization of non-polar lipids; found in lipid particles, the endoplasmic reticulum and the mitochondrial outer membrane; required for spore germination; role in cell wall biosynthesis; capable of metabolizing steroid hormones; oleic acid inducible; Belongs to the short-chain dehydrogenases/reductases (SDR) family
Sterol esterase 2; Steryl ester hydrolase; catalyzes steryl ester hydrolysis at the plasma membrane; involved in sterol metabolism; YEH2 has a paralog, YEH1, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Peroxisomal membrane signal receptor for peroxisomal matrix proteins; receptor for the C-terminal tripeptide signal sequence (PTS1) of peroxisomal matrix proteins; required for peroxisomal matrix protein import; also proposed to have PTS1-receptor independent functions
Lipase 4; Multifunctional lipase/hydrolase/phospholipase; triacylglycerol lipase, steryl ester hydrolase, and Ca2+-independent phospholipase A2; catalyzes acyl-CoA dependent acylation of LPA to PA; required with Tgl3p for timely bud formation; phosphorylated and activated by Cdc28p; TGL4 has a paralog, TGL5, that arose from the whole genome duplication
SUR7 family protein FMP45; Integral membrane protein localized to mitochondria; required for sporulation and maintaining sphingolipid content; similar to SUR7; FMP45 has a paralog, YNL194C, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Proteasome core particle subunit beta 6; Beta 6 subunit of the 20S proteasome
