STRINGSTRING
STE4 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"STE4" - G protein beta subunit, forms a dimer with Ste18p to activate the mating signaling pathway, forms a heterotrimer with Gpa1p and Ste18p to dampen signaling in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Nodes:
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:
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
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

STE4G protein beta subunit, forms a dimer with Ste18p to activate the mating signaling pathway, forms a heterotrimer with Gpa1p and Ste18p to dampen signaling; may recruit Rho1p to the polarized growth site during mating; contains WD40 repeats; Implicated in the a- and alpha-factor response pathway. The beta and gamma chains of the putative yeast mating response pathway G protein play a positive role in initiation of the mating response. The beta and gamma chains are required for the GTPase activity, for replacement of GDP by GTP, and for G protein- effector interaction (423 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
GPA1
GTP-binding alpha subunit of the heterotrimeric G protein that couples to pheromone receptors; negatively regulates the mating pathway by sequestering G(beta)gamma and by triggering an adaptive response; activates Vps34p at the endosome; Alpha subunit of the heterotrimeric guanine nucleotide- binding protein (G protein) that mediates mating pheromone signal transduction. Binding of alpha-factor or a-factor to its cognate transmembrane receptor STE2 and STE3, respectively, allows the receptor to serve as a guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) on GPA1. The exchange of GDP for GTP on [...] (472 aa)

STE18
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; Implicated in the pheromone A- and alpha-factor response pathway. The beta and gamma chains of the putative yeast mating response pathway G protein play a positive role in initiation of the mating response (110 aa)

STE5
Pheromone-response scaffold protein that controls the mating decision; binds Ste11p, Ste7p, and Fus3p kinases, forming a MAPK cascade complex that interacts with the plasma membrane and Ste4p-Ste18p; allosteric activator of Fus3p; Component of the pheromone signal transduction pathway. It mediates pheromone signals acting between STE20 and STE11. It is absolutely required for pheromone-induced transcription of FUS1.
