ULP1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"ULP1" - Protease that specifically cleaves Smt3p protein conjugates in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
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 each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology

Gene Fusion
ULP1Protease that specifically cleaves Smt3p protein conjugates; required for cell cycle progression; associates with nucleoporins and may interact with septin rings during telophase; sequestered to the nucleolus under stress conditions; Protease that catalyzes two essential functions in the SUMO pathway- processing of full-length SMT3 to its mature form and deconjugation of SMT3 from targeted proteins. Has an essential role in the G2/M phase of the cell cycle (621 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Ubiquitin-like protein of the SUMO family, conjugated to lysine residues of target proteins; regulates chromatid cohesion, chromosome segregation, APC-mediated proteolysis, DNA replication and septin ring dynamics; phosphorylated at Ser2; Not known; suppressor of MIF2 mutations (101 aa)
Karyopherin alpha homolog, forms a dimer with karyopherin beta Kap95p to mediate import of nuclear proteins, binds the nuclear localization signal of the substrate during import; may also play a role in regulation of protein degradation; Binds specifically and directly to substrates containing either a simple or bipartite NLS motif. Promotes docking of import substrates to the nuclear envelope. Seems to act as a cytosolic receptor for both simple and bipartite NLS motifs (By similarity) (542 aa)
SUMO-conjugating enzyme involved in the Smt3p conjugation pathway; nuclear protein required for S- and M-phase cyclin degradation and mitotic control; involved in proteolysis mediated by the anaphase-promoting complex cyclosome (APCC); E2 ubiquitin-like--protein ligase mediating SUMO/Smt3 attachment to septins and PCNA. Seems to be involved in degradation of S- (CLB5) and M-phase cyclins (CLB2) (157 aa)
SUMO E3 ligase, catalyzes the covalent attachment of SUMO (Smt3p) to proteins; primary E3 ligase for Sir4p; sumoylates Yku70p/Yku80p and Sir4p in vivo to promote chromatin anchoring; promotes telomere anchoring to the nuclear envelope; involved in m /.../ance of proper telomere length; May act as an E3 ligase mediating SUMO/Smt3 attachment to septins. May be involved in chromosome maintenance (726 aa)
Karyopherin/importin that interacts with the nuclear pore complex; acts as the nuclear import receptor for specific proteins, including Pdr1p, Yap1p, Ste12p, and Aft1p; Functions in nuclear protein import as nuclear transport receptor. Serves as receptor for classical and arginine/glycine- rich nuclear localization signals (cNLS and rg-NLS) in cargo substrates (PubMed-15367670). Its predominant cargo substrate seems to be ribosomal proteins and ribosome biogenesis trans- and cis-acting factors (PubMed-9182759, PubMed-9321403, PubMed-15367670). Required for nuclear transport of YAP1, NO [...] (1089 aa)
Subunit of heterodimeric nuclear SUMO activating enzyme E1 with Aos1p; activates Smt3p (SUMO) before its conjugation to proteins (sumoylation), which may play a role in protein targeting; essential for viability; The dimeric enzyme acts as a SMT3 E1 ligase. It mediates ATP-dependent activation of SMT3 and formation of a thioester with a conserved cysteine residue on AOS1 (636 aa)
SUMO/Smt3 ligase that promotes the attachment of sumo (Smt3p; small ubiquitin-related modifier) to proteins; binds Ubc9p and may bind septins; specifically required for sumoylation of septins in vivo; localized to the septin ring; Acts as an E3 ligase mediating SUMO/Smt3 attachment to septins and PCNA. May be involved in chromosome maintenance (904 aa)
Myosin-like protein associated with the nuclear envelope, connects the nuclear pore complex with the nuclear interior; involved in the Tel1p pathway that controls telomere length; Involved together with the closely related MLP1 in the structural and functional organization of perinuclear chromatin. MLP1/MLP2 associate with the nuclear pore complex and form filamentous structures along the nuclear periphery. According to PubMed-11862215 some telomeres are tethered to the nuclear periphery through MLP1/MLP2, probably mediated by YKU70/YKU80 (HDF1/HDF2) heterodimer and show perinuclear lo [...] (1679 aa)
Karyopherin beta, forms a complex with Srp1p/Kap60p; interacts with nucleoporins to mediate nuclear import of NLS-containing cargo proteins via the nuclear pore complex; regulates PC biosynthesis; GDP-to-GTP exchange factor for Gsp1p; Importin beta subunit that functions in nuclear protein import through association with the importin alpha subunit, which binds to the classical nuclear localization signal (cNLS) in cargo substrates (PubMed-7622450). Docking of the importin/substrate complex to the nuclear pore complex (NPC) is mediated by importin beta through binding to nucleoporin FxF [...] (861 aa)
Subunit of the Nup84p subcomplex of the nuclear pore complex (NPC); localizes to both sides of the NPC, required to establish a normal nucleocytoplasmic concentration gradient of the GTPase Gsp1p; required also for transcription elongation as demons /.../ by the G-less-based run-on (GLRO) assay; Functions as a component of the nuclear pore complex (NPC). NPC components, collectively referred to as nucleoporins (NUPs), can play the role of both NPC structural components and of docking or interaction partners for transiently associated nuclear transport factors. NUP133 is involved in nuc [...] (1157 aa)
