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
SPS4Sporulation-specific protein 4; Protein whose expression is induced during sporulation; not required for sporulation; heterologous expression in E. coli induces the SOS response that senses DNA damage (338 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Uncharacterized protein; F-box protein subunit of SCF ubiquitin ligase complex; substrate-specific adaptor subunit that recruits substrates to a core ubiquitination complex
Protein required for spore wall maturation; expressed during sporulation; may be a component of the spore wall; expression also induced in cells treated with the mycotoxin patulin; SPS100 has a paralog, YGP1, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Protein of unknown function that localizes to lipid particles; localization suggests a role in lipid metabolism; expression pattern suggests a role in respiratory growth; computational analysis of large-scale protein-protein interaction data suggests a role in ATP/ADP exchange
Putative uncharacterized protein YDR510C-A; Dubious open reading frame unlikely to encode a functional protein; identified by gene-trapping, microarray-based expression analysis, and genome-wide homology searching
Solute carrier family 31 (copper transporter), member 1; High-affinity copper transporter of plasma membrane; mediates nearly all copper uptake under low copper conditions; transcriptionally induced at low copper levels and degraded at high copper levels; protein increases in abundance and relocalizes from nucleus to plasma membrane upon DNA replication stress; human homolog SLC31A1 can complement a yeast ctr1 ctr3 double deletion
Good for full DBP5 activity protein 2; Protein of unknown function; identified as a high-copy suppressor of a dbp5 mutation; GFD2 has a paralog, YDR514C, that arose from the whole genome duplication
RING finger ubiquitin ligase (E3); involved in ubiquitination and degradation of excess histones; interacts with Ubc4p and Rad53p; null mutant sensitive to hydroxyurea (HU); Belongs to the RBR family
Putative meiotic phospholipase SPO1; Meiosis-specific prospore protein; required for meiotic spindle pole body duplication and separation; required to produce bending force necessary for proper prospore membrane assembly during sporulation; has similarity to phospholipase B
Uncharacterized protein YER135C; Putative protein of unknown function; conserved among S. cerevisiae strains; YER135C is not an essential gene
Suppressor of mar1-1 protein; Transcriptional repressor that regulates middle-sporulation genes; required for mitotic repression of middle sporulation-specific genes; also acts as general replication initiation factor; involved in telomere maintenance, chromatin silencing; regulated by pachytene checkpoint
