OAZ1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"OAZ1" - Regulator of ornithine decarboxylase Spe1p 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
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
OAZ1Regulator of ornithine decarboxylase Spe1p; antizyme that binds to Spe1p to stimulate ubiquitin-independent degradation by the proteasome; binding of polyamines to nascent Oaz1p during translation stimulates +1 ribosomal frameshifting, allowing translation of full-length Oaz1p; Mediates the degradation of SPE1 (ornithine decarboxylase) by the proteasome (292 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Ornithine decarboxylase, catalyzes the first step in polyamine biosynthesis; degraded in a proteasome-dependent manner in the presence of excess polyamines; deletion decreases lifespan, and increases necrotic cell death and ROS generation (466 aa)
AdoMet-dependent tRNA methyltransferase and actin binding protein; C-terminal domain is responsible for 3-methylcytidine modification of residue 32 of the tRNA anticodon loop of tRNA-Thr and tRNA-Ser and contains an S-adenosylmethionine (AdoMet) bin /.../otif; N-terminal actin binding sequence interacts with actin filaments and localizes to actin patches and cables; N- and C-terminal domains are encoded in separate ORFs that are translated into one protein via a +1 frameshift; S-adenosyl-L-methionine-dependent methyltransferase that mediates 3-methylcytidine modification of residue 32 [...] (628 aa)
S-adenosylmethionine decarboxylase, required for the biosynthesis of spermidine and spermine; cells lacking Spe2p require spermine or spermidine for growth in the presence of oxygen but not when grown anaerobically; S-adenosylmethionine decarboxylase is essential for normal growth, sporulation, maintenance of ds-RNA virus, biosynthesis of spermine and spermidine (396 aa)
Retrotransposon TYA Gag and TYB Pol genes; transcribed/translated as one unit; polyprotein is processed to make a nucleocapsid-like protein (Gag), reverse transcriptase (RT), protease (PR), and integrase (IN); similar to retroviral genes; Integrase (IN) targets the VLP to the nucleus, where a subparticle preintegration complex (PIC) containing at least integrase and the newly synthesized dsDNA copy of the retrotransposon must transit the nuclear membrane. Once in the nucleus, integrase performs the integration of the dsDNA into the host genome (1547 aa)
Component of the telomerase holoenzyme, involved in telomere replication; Component of the telomerase complex involved in telomere replication. Stimulates RNA/DNA heteroduplex unwinding which favors the telomere replication by the telomerase (181 aa)
