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
GAC1Regulatory subunit for Glc7p type-1 protein phosphatase (PP1); tethers Glc7p to Gsy2p glycogen synthase, binds Hsf1p heat shock transcription factor, required for induction of some HSF-regulated genes under heat shock; GAC1 has a paralog, PIG1, that arose from the whole genome duplication (793 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Serine/threonine-protein phosphatase PP1-2; Type 1 S/T protein phosphatase (PP1) catalytic subunit; involved in glycogen metabolism, sporulation and mitotic progression; interacts with multiple regulatory subunits; regulates actomyosin ring formation; subunit of CPF; recruited to mating projections by Afr1p interaction; regulates nucleocytoplasmic shuttling of Hxk2p; import into the nucleus is inhibited during spindle assembly checkpoint arrest; involved in dephosphorylating Rps6a/b and Bnr1p; Belongs to the PPP phosphatase family. PP-1 subfamily
Glycogen [starch] synthase isoform 2; Glycogen synthase; expression induced by glucose limitation, nitrogen starvation, heat shock, and stationary phase; activity regulated by cAMP-dependent, Snf1p and Pho85p kinases as well as by the Gac1p-Glc7p phosphatase; GSY2 has a paralog, GSY1, that arose from the whole genome duplication; relocalizes from cytoplasm to plasma membrane upon DNA replication stress; Belongs to the glycosyltransferase 3 family
GLC7-interacting protein 2; Putative regulatory subunit of protein phosphatase Glc7p; involved in glycogen metabolism; contains a conserved motif (GVNK motif) that is also found in Gac1p, Pig1p, and Pig2p; GIP2 has a paralog, PIG2, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Regulatory subunit of the type 1 protein phosphatase (PP1) Glc7p; whether it functions as a positive or negative regulator of Glc7p is controversial; involved in the regulation of Glc7p nuclear localization and function; Belongs to the SDS22 family
GSY2-interacting protein PIG2; Putative type-1 protein phosphatase targeting subunit; tethers Glc7p type-1 protein phosphatase to Gsy2p glycogen synthase; PIG2 has a paralog, GIP2, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Serine/threonine-protein phosphatase PP1-1; Ceramide-activated, type 2A-related serine-threonine phosphatase; functions in G1/S transition of mitotic cycle; controls lifespan, mitochondrial function, cell cycle progression by regulating HXK2 phosphorylation; regulator of COPII coat dephosphorylation; required for ER to Golgi traffic; interacts with Hrr25p kinase; cytoplasmic and nuclear protein that modulates functions mediated by Pkc1p including cell wall and actin cytoskeleton organization; similar to human PP6; Belongs to the PPP phosphatase family. PP-6 (PP-V) subfamily
Glycogen branching enzyme, involved in glycogen accumulation; green fluorescent protein (GFP)-fusion protein localizes to the cytoplasm in a punctate pattern; relocalizes from nucleus to cytoplasmic foci upon DNA replication stress; glycogen accumulation defect of the null mutant is functionally complemented by human GBE1, which is associated with glycogen storage disease; Belongs to the glycosyl hydrolase 13 family. GlgB subfamily
Catalytic subunit of protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A); functionally redundant with Pph22p; methylated at C terminus; forms alternate complexes with several regulatory subunits; involved in signal transduction and regulation of mitosis; forms nuclear foci upon DNA replication stress; PPH21 has a paralog, PPH22, that arose from the whole genome duplication
GLC7-interacting protein 1; Meiosis-specific regulatory subunit of the Glc7p protein phosphatase; regulates spore wall formation and septin organization, required for expression of some late meiotic genes and for normal localization of Glc7p
Putative targeting subunit for type-1 protein phosphatase Glc7p; tethers Glc7p to Gsy2p glycogen synthase; PIG1 has a paralog, GAC1, that arose from the whole genome duplication
