AZF1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"AZF1" - Zinc-finger transcription factor, involved in induction of CLN3 transcription in response to glucose 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

AZF1Zinc-finger transcription factor, involved in induction of CLN3 transcription in response to glucose; genetic and physical interactions indicate a possible role in mitochondrial transcription or genome maintenance; Potential transcription factor; suppressor for a mitochondrial RNA polymerase mutant (914 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Transcription cofactor, forms complexes with Swi4p and Mbp1p to regulate transcription at the G1/S transition; involved in meiotic gene expression; cell wall stress induces phosphorylation by Mpk1p, which regulates Swi6p localization; Part of a complex involved in cell-cycle-dependent transcription. SWI4 and SWI6 are required for formation of the cell-cycle box factor-DNA complex. The repeated element in the upstream region of HO (5’-CACGAAAA-3’) is called the cell cycle box (CCB) (803 aa)
Component of the Sin3p-Rpd3p histone deacetylase complex, involved in transcriptional repression and activation of diverse processes, including mating-type switching and meiosis; involved in the maintenance of chromosomal integrity; Catalytic component of the RPD3 histone deacetylase complexes RPD3C(L) and RPD3C(S) responsible for the deacetylation of lysine residues on the N-terminal part of the core histones (H2A, H2B, H3 and H4). Histone deacetylation gives a tag for epigenetic repression and plays an important role in transcriptional regulation, cell cycle progression and developme [...] (1536 aa)
Adenylate cyclase, required for cAMP production and cAMP-dependent protein kinase signaling; the cAMP pathway controls a variety of cellular processes, including metabolism, cell cycle, stress response, stationary phase, and sporulation; Plays essential roles in regulation of cellular metabolism by catalyzing the synthesis of a second messenger, cAMP (2026 aa)
G1 cyclin involved in cell cycle progression; activates Cdc28p kinase to promote the G1 to S phase transition; plays a role in regulating transcription of the other G1 cyclins, CLN1 and CLN2; regulated by phosphorylation and proteolysis; Essential for the control of the cell cycle at the G1/S (start) transition. CLN3 may be an upstream activator of the G1 cyclins which directly catalyze start (580 aa)
Histone H3, core histone protein required for chromatin assembly, part of heterochromatin-mediated telomeric and HM silencing; one of two identical histone H3 proteins (see HHT1); regulated by acetylation, methylation, and phosphorylation; Core component of nucleosome. Nucleosomes wrap and compact DNA into chromatin, limiting DNA accessibility to the cellular machineries which require DNA as a template. Histones thereby play a central role in transcription regulation, DNA repair, DNA replication and chromosomal stability. DNA accessibility is regulated via a complex set of post-transla [...] (136 aa)
DNA-binding protein involved in either activation or repression of transcription, depending on binding site context; also binds telomere sequences and plays a role in telomeric position effect (silencing) and telomere structure; Essential regulatory protein in yeast whose DNA-binding sites are found at three types of chromosomal elements- promoters, silencers, and telomeres. RAP1 is also involved in the regulation of telomere structure, where its binding sites are found within the terminal poly[C(1-3)A] sequences. The opposite regulatory functions of RAP1 are not intrinsic to its bindi [...] (827 aa)
Component of the RSC chromatin remodeling complex; interacts with Rsc3p, Rsc30p, Ldb7p, and Htl1p to form a module important for a broad range of RSC functions; Component of the chromatin structure remodeling complex (RSC), which is involved in transcription regulation and nucleosome positioning. RSC is responsible for the transfer of a histone octamer from a nucleosome core particle to naked DNA. The reaction requires ATP and involves an activated RSC-nucleosome intermediate. Remodeling reaction also involves DNA translocation, DNA twist and conformational change. As a reconfigurer of [...] (435 aa)
Serine/threonine MAP kinase; involved in regulating maintenance of cell wall integrity, progression through the cell cycle, and nuclear mRNA retention in heat shock; required for mitophagy and pexophagy; affects recruitment of mitochondria to the ph /.../re assembly site (PAS); regulated by the PKC1-mediated signaling pathway; Serine/threonine protein kinase involved in a signal transduction pathway that plays a role in yeast cell morphogenesis and cell growth. This pathway seems to start by SMP3; then involve the kinase PKC1 that may act the BCK1 kinase that then phosphorylates MKK1 a [...] (484 aa)
bZIP transcriptional activator of amino acid biosynthetic genes; activator responds to amino acid starvation; expression is tightly regulated at both the transcriptional and translational levels; Is a transcription factor that is responsible for the activation of more than 30 genes required for amino acid or for purine biosynthesis in response to amino acid or purine starvation. Binds and recognize the DNA sequence- 5’-TGA[CG]TCA- 3’ (281 aa)
Histone deacetylase; regulates transcription, silencing, and other processes by influencing chromatin remodeling; forms at least two different complexes which have distinct functions and members; Catalytic component of the RPD3 histone deacetylase (HDAC) complexes RPD3C(L) and RPD3C(S) responsible for the deacetylation of lysine residues on the N-terminal part of the core histones (H2A, H2B, H3 and H4). Histone deacetylation plays an important role in transcriptional regulation, cell cycle progression, DNA damage response, osmotic stress response and developmental events. Is involved i [...] (433 aa)
