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
PNT1Pentamidine resistance factor, mitochondrial; Mitochondrial integral inner membrane protein; involved in membrane insertion of C-terminus of Cox2p, interacts genetically and physically with Cox18p; deletion mutant sensitive to the anti-Pneumocystis carinii drug pentamidine (423 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Protein required for membrane insertion of C-terminus of Cox2p; mitochondrial integral inner membrane protein; interacts genetically and physically with Mss2p and Pnt1p; similar to S. cerevisiae Oxa1, N. crassa Oxa2p, and E. coli YidC; respiratory defect of the null mutant is functionally complemented by human COX18 carrying the N-terminal 54 amino acids of S. cerevisiae Cox18p; Belongs to the OXA1/ALB3/YidC family
Protein MSS2, mitochondrial; Peripherally bound inner membrane protein of the mitochondrial matrix; involved in membrane insertion of C-terminus of Cox2p, interacts genetically and physically with Cox18p
Membrane-associated mitochondrial ribosome receptor; forms a complex with Mdm38p that may facilitate recruitment of mRNA-specific translational activators to ribosomes; possible role in protein export from the matrix to inner membrane
Mitochondrial inner membrane protein; required for proteolytic processing of Cox2p and its assembly into cytochrome c oxidase; Belongs to the COX20 family
Mitochondrial inner membrane insertase; mediates the insertion of both mitochondrial- and nuclear-encoded proteins from the matrix into the inner membrane; also has a role in insertion of carrier proteins into the inner membrane; acts as a voltage-gated ion channel, activated by substrate peptides; interacts with mitochondrial ribosomes; conserved from bacteria to animals
Putative thioredoxin peroxidase sco2; Protein anchored to mitochondrial inner membrane; may have a redundant function with Sco1p in delivery of copper to cytochrome c oxidase; interacts with Cox2p; SCO2 has a paralog, SCO1, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Protein PET111, mitochondrial; Mitochondrial translational activator specific for the COX2 mRNA; located in the mitochondrial inner membrane
Copper-binding protein of mitochondrial inner membrane; required for cytochrome c oxidase activity and respiration; may function to deliver copper to cytochrome c oxidase; similar to thioredoxins; SCO1 has a paralog, SCO2, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Subunit II of cytochrome c oxidase (Complex IV); Complex IV is the terminal member of the mitochondrial inner membrane electron transport chain; one of three mitochondrially-encoded subunits
Protein SOM1, mitochondrial; Subunit of the mitochondrial inner membrane peptidase (IMP); IMP is required for maturation of mitochondrial proteins of the intermembrane space; Som1p facilitates cleavage of a subset of substrates; contains twin cysteine-x9-cysteine motifs
