SLK19 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"SLK19" - Kinetochore-associated protein required for normal segregation of chromosomes in meiosis and mitosis 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

SLK19Kinetochore-associated protein required for normal segregation of chromosomes in meiosis and mitosis; component of the FEAR regulatory network, which promotes Cdc14p release from the nucleolus during anaphase; potential Cdc28p substrate; Has a role in spindle assembly and stability. Required to ensure a timely exit form mitosis. Essential to maintain pre- anaphase spindle polarity. Associates to the plus ends of the microtubules at the kinetochore and spindle midzone. A component of the FEAR (CDC14 Early Anaphase Release) network which promotes CDC14 release from the nucleolus during e [...] (821 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Separase, a caspase-like cysteine protease that promotes sister chromatid separation by mediating dissociation of the cohesin Scc1p from chromatin; inhibits protein phosphatase 2A-Cdc55p to promote mitotic exit; inhibited by Pds1p; Caspase-like protease, which plays a central role in the chromosome segregation by cleaving the MCD1/SCC1 subunit of the cohesin complex at the onset of anaphase. During most of the cell cycle, it is inactivated by securin/PDS1 protein. It also promotes anaphase spindle elongation. A component of the FEAR (CDC14 early anaphase release) network which promotes [...] (1630 aa)
Kinesin motor protein involved in mitotic spindle assembly and chromosome segregation; Required for assembly of the mitotic spindle. Interacts with spindle microtubules to produce an outwardly directed force acting upon the poles. Following spindle assembly, CIN8 and KIP1 apparently act to oppose a force that draws separated poles back together. This force seems to be mediated by KAR3 (1000 aa)
Non-essential regulatory subunit B of protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A); localization to cytoplasm requires Zds1p and Zds2p and promotes mitotic entry; localization to nucleus prevents mitotic exit; required for correct nuclear division and chromosome segregation in meiosis; maintains nucleolar sequestration of Cdc14p during early meiosis; limits formation of PP2A-Rts1p holocomplexes to ensure timely dissolution of sister chromosome cohesion; homolog of mammalian B55; Phosphatase 2A affects a variety of biological processes in the cell such as transcription, cell cycle progression and cell [...] (526 aa)
Nucleolar protein of unknown function, positive regulator of mitotic exit; involved in regulating release of Cdc14p from the nucleolus in early anaphase, may play similar role in meiosis; It is required for meiosis I chromosome division during sporulation. A component of the FEAR (CDC14 early anaphase release) network which promotes CDC14 release from the nucleolus during early anaphase (173 aa)
Protein phosphatase required for mitotic exit; required for rDNA segregation, cytokinesis, meiosis I spindle disassembly, environmental stress response; held in nucleolus by Cdc55p in early meiosis, liberated by FEAR and Mitotic Exit Network in anaphase, enabling it to effect a decrease in CDK/B-cyclin activity and mitotic exit; sequestered in metaphase II, released upon entry into anaphase II; human homolog CDC14A can complement thermosensitivity of yeast cdc14-1 mutant; Protein phosphatase which antagonizes mitotic cyclin- dependent kinase CDC28, the inactivation of which is essentia [...] (551 aa)
Protein similar to GDP/GTP exchange factors; without detectable GEF activity; required for asymmetric localization of Bfa1p at daughter-directed spindle pole bodies and for mitotic exit at low temperatures; GDP-GTP exchange factor for TEM1, a Ras-like protein, component of the mitotic exit network (MEN). Activation of TEM1 by LTE1 in the bud ultimately leads to activation of CDC15 followed by the release of CDC14 from the nucleolus, which then inactivates cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs) activity by several mechanism. Required for TEM1 localization to the bud cortex during mitotic exit. [...] (1435 aa)
Essential subunit of the Dam1 complex (aka DASH complex), couples kinetochores to the force produced by MT depolymerization thereby aiding in chromosome segregation; Ipl1p target for regulating kinetochore-MT attachments; Component of the DASH complex, a microtubule-binding subcomplex of the outer kinetochore that is essential for proper chromosome segregation. The DASH complex mediates the formation and maintenance of bipolar kinetochore-microtubule attachments by forming closed rings around spindle microtubules and establishing interactions with proteins from the central kinetochore. [...] (343 aa)
Microtubule-associated protein (MAP) of the XMAP215/Dis1 family; regulates microtubule dynamics during spindle orientation and metaphase chromosome alignment; interacts with spindle pole body component Spc72p; May play a role in the attachment, organization, and/or dynamics of microtubule ends at the spindle pole body (888 aa)
Aurora kinase subunit of the conserved chromosomal passenger complex (CPC; Ipl1p-Sli15p-Bir1p-Nbl1p), involved in regulating kinetochore-microtubule attachments; helps maintain condensed chromosomes during anaphase and early telophase; required for /.../hesion and prevention of multipolar spindle formation; Required for high-fidelity chromosome segregation during the later part of each cell cycle. Acts in opposition to the phosphatase PP1. Has a role in attaching the kinetochores to the microtubules and ensuring that sister kinetochores connect to opposite poles. The promotion of bi-o [...] (367 aa)
Outer kinetochore protein, required for accurate mitotic chromosome segregation; component of the kinetochore sub-complex COMA (Ctf19p, Okp1p, Mcm21p, Ame1p) that functions as a platform for kinetochore assembly; Component of the central kinetochore, which mediates the attachment of the centromere to the mitotic spindle by forming essential interactions between the microtubule-associated outer kinetochore proteins and the centromere-associated inner kinetochore proteins. Required for establishing bipolar spindle- microtubule attachments and proper chromosome segregation (406 aa)
