STE13 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"STE13" - Dipeptidyl aminopeptidase, Golgi integral membrane protein that cleaves on the carboxyl side of repeating -X-Ala- sequences, required for maturation of alpha factor, transcription is induced by a-factor 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

STE13Dipeptidyl aminopeptidase, Golgi integral membrane protein that cleaves on the carboxyl side of repeating -X-Ala- sequences, required for maturation of alpha factor, transcription is induced by a-factor; Responsible for the proteolytic maturation of the alpha- factor precursor (931 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Subtilisin-like protease (proprotein convertase), a calcium-dependent serine protease involved in the activation of proproteins of the secretory pathway; Processing of precursors of alpha-factors and killer toxin (814 aa)
Type I transmembrane sorting receptor for multiple vacuolar hydrolases; cycles between the late-Golgi and prevacuolar endosome-like compartments; Functions as a sorting receptor in the Golgi compartment required for the intracellular sorting and delivery of soluble vacuolar proteins, like carboxypeptidase Y (CPY) and proteinase A. May execute multiple rounds of sorting by cycling between the late Golgi and a prevacuolar endosome-like compartment. Binds the Golgi-modified P2 form of CPY, and this interaction is dependent on the presence of an intact CPY vacuolar protein sorting signal (1579 aa)
Mitochondrial aminopeptidase; cleaves the N termini of at least 38 imported proteins after cleavage by the mitochondrial processing peptidase (MPP), thereby increasing their stability; member of the aminopeptidase P family; Aminopeptidase which cleaves preprotein intermediates that carry destabilizing N-ter amino acid residues after the mitochondrial processing peptidase (MPP) cleavage site and is thus critical for stabilization of the mitochondrial proteome (511 aa)
Protease involved in the processing of killer toxin and alpha factor precursor; cleaves Lys and Arg residues from the C-terminus of peptides and proteins; Protease with a carboxypeptidase B-like function involved in the C-terminal processing of the lysine and arginine residues from the precursors of K1, K2 and K28 killer toxins and a-factor (mating pheromone). Involved in the programmed cell death caused by defective N-glycosylation and contributes also to the active cell death program induced by acetic acid stress or during chronological aging. Promotes cell fusion by proteolytically [...] (729 aa)
Sorting nexin required to maintain late-Golgi resident enzymes in their proper location by recycling molecules from the prevacuolar compartment; contains a PX domain and sequence similarity to human Snx3p; Required for retention of late Golgi membrane proteins. Component of the retrieval machinery that functions by direct interaction with the cytosolic tails of certain TGN membrane proteins during the sorting/budding process at the prevacuolar compartment. Binds phosphatidylinositol 3-phosphate (PtdIns(P3)) (162 aa)
Vacuolar carboxypeptidase Y (proteinase C, CPY); broad-specificity C-terminal exopeptidase involved in non-specific protein degradation in the vacuole; member of the serine carboxypeptidase family; Involved in degradation of small peptides. Digests preferentially peptides containing an aliphatic or hydrophobic residue in P1’ position, as well as methionine, leucine or phenylalanine in P1 position of ester substrate (532 aa)
Mating pheromone alpha-factor, made by alpha cells; interacts with mating type a cells to induce cell cycle arrest and other responses leading to mating; also encoded by MF(ALPHA)2, although MF(ALPHA)1 produces most alpha-factor; The active factor is excreted into the culture medium by haploid cells of the alpha mating type and acts on cells of the opposite mating type (type A). It mediates the conjugation process between the two types by inhibiting the initiation of DNA synthesis in type a cells and synchronizing them with type alpha (165 aa)
Vacuolar aspartyl protease (proteinase A), required for the posttranslational precursor maturation of vacuolar proteinases; important for protein turnover after oxidative damage; synthesized as a zymogen, self-activates; Aspartyl protease implicated in the post-translational regulation of S.cerevisiae vacuolar proteinases. Acts on YSCB, on YSCY and on itself (405 aa)
Endosomal subunit of membrane-associated retromer complex required for retrograde transport; receptor that recognizes retrieval signals on cargo proteins, forms subcomplex with Vps26p and Vps29p that selects cargo proteins for retrieval; Plays a role in vesicular protein sorting. Required for the endosome-to-Golgi retrieval of the vacuolar protein sorting receptor VPS10. Vacuolar carboxypeptidase Y (CPY) sorting is completely dependent on the presence of functional VPS35. The latter may play a role in the function, modification or packaging of a CPY-specific receptor complex. Component [...] (944 aa)
Dynamin-like GTPase required for vacuolar sorting; also involved in actin cytoskeleton organization, endocytosis, late Golgi-retention of some proteins, regulation of peroxisome biogenesis; Essential for protein sorting in meiotic cell division of Saccharomyces cerevisiae; it binds microtubules. Could also be involved in microtubule-associated motility. Necessary for membrane protein retention in a late Golgi compartment. Interacts with the MVP1 protein (704 aa)
