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
ALE1Broad-specificity lysophospholipid acyltransferase; part of MBOAT family of membrane-bound O-acyltransferases; key component of Lands cycle; may have role in fatty acid exchange at sn-2 position of mature glycerophospholipids; Belongs to the membrane-bound acyltransferase family (619 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
1-acyl-sn-glycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase; catalyzes the acylation of lysophosphatidic acid to form phosphatidic acid, a key intermediate in lipid metabolism; enzymatic activity detected in lipid particles and microsomes
Acyltransferase that catalyzes diacylglycerol esterification; one of several acyltransferases that contribute to triglyceride synthesis; Lro1p and Dga1p can O-acylate ceramides; putative homolog of human lecithin cholesterol acyltransferase
Phosphatidylserine decarboxylase of the mitochondrial inner membrane; converts phosphatidylserine to phosphatidylethanolamine; regulates mitochondrial fusion and morphology by affecting lipid mixing in the mitochondrial membrane and by influencing the ratio of long to short forms of Mgm1p; partly exposed to the mitochondrial intermembrane space; autocatalytically processed; Belongs to the phosphatidylserine decarboxylase family. PSD-B subfamily. Eukaryotic type I sub-subfamily
Glycerol-3-phosphate O-acyltransferase 1; Glycerol 3-phosphate/dihydroxyacetone phosphate sn-1 acyltransferase; dual substrate-specific acyltransferase of the glycerolipid biosynthesis pathway; prefers 16-carbon fatty acids; similar to Gpt2p; gene is constitutively transcribed
Glycerol-3-phosphate O-acyltransferase 2; Glycerol-3-phosphate/dihydroxyacetone phosphate sn-1 acyltransferase; located in lipid particles and the ER; involved in the stepwise acylation of glycerol-3-phosphate and dihydroxyacetone in lipid biosynthesis; the most conserved motifs and functionally relevant residues are oriented towards the ER lumen; Belongs to the GPAT/DAPAT family
Phosphatidylserine decarboxylase of the Golgi and vacuolar membranes; converts phosphatidylserine to phosphatidylethanolamine; controls vacuolar membrane phospholipid content by regulating phospholipids in compartments that will eventually give rise to the vacuole; loss of Psd2p causes a specific reduction in vacuolar membrane PE levels while total PE levels are not significantly affected
Phosphatidylethanolamine n-methyltransferase; Phosphatidylethanolamine methyltransferase (PEMT); catalyzes the first step in the conversion of phosphatidylethanolamine to phosphatidylcholine during the methylation pathway of phosphatidylcholine biosynthesis
Phosphatidyl-N-methylethanolamine N-methyltransferase; Methylene-fatty-acyl-phospholipid synthase; catalyzes the last two steps in phosphatidylcholine biosynthesis; also known as phospholipid methyltransferase
Lyso-phosphatidylcholine acyltransferase; required for normal phospholipid content of mitochondrial membranes; major determinant of the final acyl chain composition of the mitochondrial-specific phospholipid cardiolipin; mutations in human ortholog tafazzin (TAZ) cause Barth syndrome, a rare X-linked disease characterized by skeletal and cardiomyopathy and bouts of cyclic neutropenia; a specific splice variant of human TAZ can complement yeast null mutant
Sn-1,2-diacylglycerol ethanolamine- and cholinephosphotranferase; not essential for viability; EPT1 has a paralog, CPT1, that arose from the whole genome duplication; Belongs to the CDP-alcohol phosphatidyltransferase class-I family
