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

RAX1Protein involved in bud site selection during bipolar budding; localization requires Rax2p; has similarity to members of the insulin-related peptide superfamily (435 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Bud site selection protein RAX2; N-glycosylated protein; involved in the maintenance of bud site selection during bipolar budding; localization requires Rax1p; RAX2 mRNA stability is regulated by Mpt5p
Protein involved in bud-site selection; mutant has increased aneuploidy tolerance; diploid mutants display a unipolar budding pattern instead of the wild-type bipolar pattern, and bud at the distal pole; BUD9 has a paralog, BUD8, that arose from the whole genome duplication; To yeast BUD8
Structural protein MDM1; PtdIns-3-P binding protein that tethers the ER to vacuoles at NVJs; anchored in the ER membrane at nucleus-vacuole junctions and binds phosphatidylinositol 3-phosphate (PtdIns-3-P) in the vacuolar membrane via its Phox homology (PX) domain; expressed predominantly in late G1 to early S phase of the cell cycle; mutation affects nuclear and mitochondrial transmission to daughter buds; similar to 4 human genes, one of which (SNX14) is associated with neurological disease
Protein involved in bud-site selection; diploid mutants display a unipolar budding pattern instead of the wild-type bipolar pattern, and bud at the proximal pole; BUD8 has a paralog, BUD9, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Ras family guanine nucleotide exchange factor bud5; Bud site selection protein 5; GTP/GDP exchange factor for Rsr1p (Bud1p); required for both axial and bipolar budding patterns; mutants exhibit random budding in all cell types
Guanine nucleotide-binding protein alpha-2 subunit; Nucleotide binding alpha subunit of the heterotrimeric G protein; interacts with the receptor Gpr1p, has signaling role in response to nutrients; required for the recruitment of Ras-GTP at the plasma membrane and in the nucleus
Negative regulator of glucose-induced cAMP signaling; directly activates the GTPase activity of the heterotrimeric G protein alpha subunit Gpa2p
Putative protease AXL1; Haploid specific endoprotease of a-factor mating pheromone; performs one of two N-terminal cleavages during maturation of a-factor mating pheromone; required for axial budding pattern of haploid cells
Anillin-like protein involved in bud-site selection; required for the axial budding pattern; required for the formation and disassembly of the double septin ring structure, and generally for septin organization; functions as a platform linking the cytokinesis tag septins to the axial landmark through its multiple domains; in vivo substrate of Cdc28p/Clb2p
Integral plasma membrane protein; required for axial budding in haploid cells; localizes to the incipient bud site and bud neck; glycosylated by Pmt4p; potential Cdc28p substrate
