MUK1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"MUK1" - Cytoplasmic protein of unknown function containing a Vps9 domain 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
MUK1Cytoplasmic protein of unknown function containing a Vps9 domain; computational analysis of large-scale protein-protein interaction data suggests a possible role in transcriptional regulation; Putative GTPase-activating protein (612 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
A guanine nucleotide exchange factor involved in vesicle-mediated vacuolar protein transport; specifically stimulates the intrinsic guanine nucleotide exchange activity of Vps21p/Rab5- similar to mammalian ras inhibitors; binds ubiquitin; Required for vacuolar protein sorting; may be required for the consumption of transport vesicles containing vacuolar protein precursors. May bind a Rab GTPase such as VPS21 (451 aa)
Endosomal subunit of membrane-associated retromer complex required for retrograde transport; receptor that recognizes retrieval signals on cargo proteins, forms subcomplex with Vps26p and Vps29p that selects cargo proteins for retrieval; Plays a role in vesicular protein sorting. Required for the endosome-to-Golgi retrieval of the vacuolar protein sorting receptor VPS10. Vacuolar carboxypeptidase Y (CPY) sorting is completely dependent on the presence of functional VPS35. The latter may play a role in the function, modification or packaging of a CPY-specific receptor complex. Component [...] (944 aa)
Nexin-1 homolog required for localizing membrane proteins from a prevacuolar/late endosomal compartment back to the late Golgi apparatus; structural component of the retromer membrane coat complex; forms a retromer subcomplex with Vps17p; Plays a role in vesicular protein sorting. Required for retention of late Golgi membrane proteins and vacuolar biogenesis. Component of the membrane-associated retromer complex which is essential in endosome-to-Golgi retrograde transport. The VPS5- VPS17 subcomplex may assemble onto the membrane to promote vesicle formation (675 aa)
Essential protein of the mitochondrial intermembrane space (IMS); promotes retention of newly imported proteins; may do so by stabilizing client protein folding as part of a disulfide relay system or transferring metal to client proteins; Required for the import and folding of small cysteine- containing proteins (small Tim) in the mitochondrial intermembrane space (IMS). Forms a redox cycle with ERV1 that involves a disulfide relay system. Precursor proteins to be imported into the IMS are translocated in their reduced form into the mitochondria. The oxidized form of MIA40 forms a tran [...] (403 aa)
Dubious open reading frame unlikely to encode a functional protein, based on available experimental and comparative sequence data (116 aa)
Peripheral mitochondrial inner membrane protein; may facilitate use of unformylated tRNA-Met in mitochondrial translation initiation; stabilizes the bicistronic AAP1-ATP6 mRNA; Required for respiration. Stabilizes the mitochondrial bicistronic mRNA encoding ATP6 and ATP8, 2 subunits of the proton- translocating ATP synthase (606 aa)
Dubious ORF unlikely to encode a functional protein, based on available experimental and comparative sequence data (117 aa)
Ubiquitin-specific protease; removes ubiquitin from ubiquitinated proteins; cleaves at the C terminus of ubiquitin fusions irrespective of their size; capable of cleaving polyubiquitin chains; Has an ATP-independent isopeptidase activity, cleaving at the C-terminus of the ubiquitin moiety in natural or engineered linear fusion proteins, irrespective of their size or the presence of an N-terminal extension to ubiquitin (809 aa)
Rab family GTPase required for endocytic transport and for sorting of vacuolar hydrolases; localized in endocytic intermediates; detected in mitochondria; geranylgeranylation required for membrane association; mammalian Rab5 homolog; Required for protein transport to the vacuole. Involved in two vesicle trafficking steps to the prevacuolar compartment (PVC), regulating the docking of endosomes and Golgi vesicles to the PVC by interacting with PEP7/VAC1 on the PVC membrane and promoting SNARE complex formation (210 aa)
Homolog of nuclear distribution factor NudE, NUDEL; interacts with Pac1p and regulates dynein targeting to microtubule plus ends; Required for nuclear migration to the bud neck during cell division. Targets cytoplasmic dynein to microtubule plus ends thereby promoting dynein-mediated microtubule sliding along the bud cortex and consequently the movement of the mitotic spindle to the bud neck (189 aa)
