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
PIN2[PSI+] induction protein 2; Exomer-dependent cargo protein; induces appearance of [PIN+] prion when overproduced; prion-like domain serves as a retention signal in the trans-Golgi network; predicted to be palmitoylated (282 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
[NU+] prion formation protein 1; ATP binding cassette protein; cosediments with polysomes and is required for biogenesis of the small ribosomal subunit; Asn/Gln-rich rich region supports [NU+] prion formation and susceptibility to [PSI+] prion induction; Belongs to the ABC transporter superfamily. ABCF family. EF3 subfamily
[PSI+] inducibility protein 3; Negative regulator of actin nucleation-promoting factor activity; interacts with Las17p, a homolog of human Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome protein (WASP), via an N-terminal SH3 domain, and along with LSB1 cooperatively inhibits the nucleation of actin filaments; short-lived protein whose levels increase in response to thermal stress; induces the formation of the [PIN+] and [RNQ+] prions when overproduced; PIN3 has a paralog, LSB1, that arose from the whole genome duplication
RNA-binding protein PIN4; Protein involved in G2/M phase progression and response to DNA damage; interacts with Rad53p; contains an RNA recognition motif, a nuclear localization signal, and several SQ/TQ cluster domains; hyperphosphorylated in response to DNA damage
G protein gamma subunit; forms a dimer with Ste4p to activate the mating signaling pathway, forms a heterotrimer with Gpa1p and Ste4p to dampen signaling; C-terminus is palmitoylated and farnesylated, which are required for normal signaling
Nitrogen catabolite repression transcriptional regulator; inhibits GLN3 transcription in good nitrogen source; role in sequestering Gln3p and Gat1p to the cytoplasm; has glutathione peroxidase activity and can mutate to acquire GST activity; self-assembly under limited nitrogen conditions creates [URE3] prion and releases catabolite repression
U6 snRNA-associated Sm-like protein LSm4; Lsm (Like Sm) protein; part of heteroheptameric complexes (Lsm2p-7p and either Lsm1p or 8p): cytoplasmic Lsm1p complex involved in mRNA decay; nuclear Lsm8p complex part of U6 snRNP and possibly involved in processing tRNA, snoRNA, and rRNA; forms cytoplasmic foci upon DNA replication stress
FG-nucleoporin component of central core of the nuclear pore complex; contributes directly to nucleocytoplasmic transport and maintenance of the nuclear pore complex (NPC) permeability barrier; forms a stable association with Nup82p, Gle2p and two other FG-nucleoporins (Nsp1p and Nup159p); NUP116 has a paralog, NUP100, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Protein BCH2; Member of the ChAPs (Chs5p-Arf1p-binding proteins) family; part of the exomer complex with Chs5p to mediate export of specific cargo proteins, including Chs3p, from the Golgi to the plasma membrane; BCH2 has a paralog, CHS6, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Palmitoylated plasma membrane-bound casein kinase I (CK1) isoform; shares redundant functions with Yck2p in morphogenesis, proper septin assembly, endocytic trafficking, and glucose sensing; stabilized by Sod1p binding in the presence of glucose and oxygen, causing glucose repression of respiratory metabolism; involved in the phosphorylation and regulation of glucose sensor Rgt2p; YCK1 has a paralog, YCK2, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Chitin synthase III; catalyzes the transfer of N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) to chitin; required for synthesis of the majority of cell wall chitin, the chitin ring during bud emergence, and spore wall chitosan; contains overlapping di-leucine and di-acidic signals that mediate, respectively, intracellular trafficking by AP-1 and trafficking to plasma membrane by exomer complex; requires AP-3 complex for its intracellular retention
