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
KIN4Serine/threonine-protein kinase KIN4; Serine/threonine protein kinase; inhibits the mitotic exit network (MEN) when the spindle position checkpoint is activated; localized asymmetrically to mother cell cortex, spindle pole body and bud neck; KIN4 has a paralog, FRK1, that arose from the whole genome duplication (800 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Mitotic check point protein BFA1; Subunit of a two-component GTPase-activating protein, Bfa1p-Bub2p; contributes to GAP activity, inactivating Tem1 by stimulating GTP hydrolysis following damage or misalignment of the mitotic spindle; functions as a guanine-nucleotide exchange inhibitor (GDI) for Tem1p; involved in multiple cell cycle checkpoint pathways that control mitotic exit; required when telomeres are damaged, but not for all types of chromosomal DNA damage; phosphorylated by the Polo-like kinase Cdc5p; To S.pombe byr4
Mitotic check point protein BUB2; Mitotic exit network regulator; forms GTPase-activating Bfa1p-Bub2p complex that binds Tem1p and spindle pole bodies, blocks cell cycle progression before anaphase in response to spindle and kinetochore damage; Belongs to the BUB2 family
GTP-binding protein of the Ras superfamily; involved in termination of M-phase; controls actomyosin and septin dynamics during cytokinesis
Guanine nucleotide exchange factor LTE1; 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
Serine/threonine-protein phosphatase 2A 56 kDa regulatory subunit delta isoform; B-type regulatory subunit of protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A); Rts1p and Cdc55p are alternative regulatory subunits for PP2A catalytic subunits, Pph21p and Pph22p; PP2A-Rts1p protects cohesin when recruited by Sgo1p to the pericentromere; highly enriched at centromeres in the absence of Cdc55p; required for maintenance of septin ring organization during cytokinesis, for ring disassembly in G1 and for dephosphorylation of septin, Shs1p; homolog of the mammalian B' subunit of PP2A
Spindle pole component SPC72; Gamma-tubulin small complex (gamma-TuSC) receptor; recruits the gamma-TuSC complex to the cytoplasmic side of the SPB, connecting nuclear microtubules to the SPB; involved in astral microtubule formation, stabilization, and with Stu2p, anchoring astral MTs at the cytoplasmic face of the SPB, and regulating plus-end MT dynamics; regulated by Cdc5 kinase
DBF2 kinase activator protein MOB1; Component of the mitotic exit network; associates with and is required for the activation and Cdc15p-dependent phosphorylation of the Dbf2p kinase; required for cytokinesis and cell separation; component of the CCR4 transcriptional complex; relocalizes from cytoplasm to the nuclear periphery upon DNA replication stress; Belongs to the MOB1/phocein family
Phosphatidylinositol (PI) 3-kinase that synthesizes PI-3-phosphate; forms membrane-associated signal transduction complex with Vps15p to regulate protein sorting; activated by the GTP-bound form of Gpa1p; a fraction is localized, with Vps15p, to nuclear pores at nucleus-vacuole junctions and may facilitate transcription elongation for genes positioned at the nuclear periphery; Belongs to the PI3/PI4-kinase family
Serine/threonine-protein kinase VPS15; Serine/threonine protein kinase involved in vacuolar protein sorting; functions as a membrane-associated complex with Vps34p; active form recruits Vps34p to the Golgi membrane; interacts with the GDP-bound form of Gpa1p; myristoylated; a fraction is localized, with Vps34p, to nuclear pores at nucleus-vacuole junctions and may facilitate transcription elongation for genes positioned at the nuclear periphery
Vacuolar protein sorting-associated protein 30; Subunit of phosphatidylinositol (PtdIns) 3-kinase complexes I and II; Complex I is essential in autophagy, Complex II is required for vacuolar protein sorting; required for overflow degradation of misfolded proteins when ERAD is saturated; C-terminus has novel globular fold essential for autophagy through the targeting of the PI3-kinase complex I to the pre-autophagosomal structure; ortholog of higher eukaryote gene Beclin 1; human BECN1 can complement yeast null mutant
