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
OSW1Outer spore wall protein 1; Protein involved in sporulation; required for the construction of the outer spore wall layers; required for proper localization of Spo14p (278 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Sporulation-specific protein 2; Sporulation specific protein that localizes to the spore wall; required for sporulation at a point after meiosis II and during spore wall formation; expression controlled by a tightly regulated middle-meiotic promoter that is activated by Ndt80p; translation of SSP2 mRNA is delayed, such that the mRNA is present as nuclear divisions are taking place but is not engaged by ribosomes until relatively late in meiotic development
Protein involved in outer spore wall assembly; likely involved directly in dityrosine layer assembly; induced during sporulation; repressed during vegetative growth by Sum1p and Hst1p; sequence similar to adjacent ORF, IRC18/YJL037W, and the irc18 loh1 double mutant exhibits reduced dityrosine fluorescence relative to the single mutants; SWAT-GFP and mCherry fusion proteins localize to the cytosol; proposed role in maintenance of genome integrity
Protein mum3; Protein of unknown function involved in outer spore wall organization; has similarity to the tafazzins superfamily of acyltransferases
Sporulation-specific enzyme required for spore wall maturation; involved in the production of a soluble LL-dityrosine-containing precursor of the spore wall; transcripts accumulate at the time of prospore enclosure
Putative uncharacterized protein YJR037W; Dubious open reading frame; unlikely to encode a functional protein, based on available experimental and comparative sequence data; partially overlaps verified gene HUL4/YJR036C; deletion mutant has decreased spore survival in Drosophila feces
Outer spore wall protein 5; Protein of unknown function with possible role in spore wall assembly; predicted to contain an N-terminal transmembrane domain; osw5 null mutant spores exhibit increased spore wall permeability and sensitivity to beta-glucanase digestion
Subtilase-type proteinase RRT12; Probable subtilisin-family protease; role in formation of the dityrosine layer of spore walls; localizes to the spore wall and also the nuclear envelope and ER region in mature spores
Alpha1-proteinase inhibitor-degradation deficient protein 37; Protein of unknown function; involved in ER-associated protein degradation; green fluorescent protein (GFP)-fusion protein localizes to the cytoplasm and is induced in response to the DNA-damaging agent MMS; YMR184W is not an essential gene; protein abundance increases in response to DNA replication stress
Phospholipase D; catalyzes the hydrolysis of phosphatidylcholine, producing choline and phosphatidic acid; involved in Sec14p-independent secretion; required for meiosis and spore formation; differently regulated in secretion and meiosis; participates in transcription initiation and/or early elongation of specific genes; interacts with "foot domain" of RNA polymerase II; deletion results in abnormal CTD-Ser5 phosphorylation of RNA polymerase II at specific promoter regions
Translational elongation factor EF-1 alpha; in the GTP-bound active form, binds to and delivers aminoacylated tRNA to the A-site of ribosomes for elongation of nascent polypeptides; associates with vacuolar Rho1p GTPase; TEF2-RFP levels increase during replicative aging; may also have a role in tRNA re-export from the nucleus; TEF2 has a paralog, TEF1, that arose from the whole genome duplication
