KAP120 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"KAP120" - Karyopherin responsible for the nuclear import of ribosome maturation factor Rfp1p 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

KAP120Karyopherin responsible for the nuclear import of ribosome maturation factor Rfp1p; Functions in nuclear protein import as nuclear transport receptor. Serves as receptor for nuclear localization signals (NLS) in cargo substrates. Thought to mediate docking of the importin/substrate complex to the nuclear pore complex (NPC) through binding to nucleoporin and the complex is subsequently translocated through the pore by an energy requiring, RAN- dependent mechanism. Required for nuclear import of Ho endonuclease and RFP1, and involved in rRNA-processing and assembly or export of 60S ribos [...] (1032 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Ran GTPase, GTP binding protein (mammalian Ranp homolog) involved in the maintenance of nuclear organization, RNA processing and transport; regulated by Srm1p, Rna1p, Yrb1p, Yrb2p, Yrp4p, Yrb30p, Cse1p and Kap95p; yeast Gsp2p homolog; GTP-binding protein involved in nucleocytoplasmic transport. Required for the import of protein into the nucleus and also for RNA export. Essential for cell viability. By analogy with Ras, Ran may be activated when GTP is exchanged for bound GDP by RCC1 and inactivated when GTP is hydrolyzed by Ran upon activation by RanGAP1 (219 aa)
Karyopherin, responsible for nuclear import of Spt15p, Sua7p, histones H2A and H2B, and Nap1p; amino terminus shows similarity to those of other importins, particularly Cse1p; localization is primarily nuclear; Required for nuclear protein import and mediates docking of import substrate to distinct nucleoporins. Serves a receptor for nuclear localization signals. Mediates the nuclear import of TATA-binding protein (TBP) and of histones H2A and H2B (1004 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)
Karyopherin, a carrier protein involved in nuclear import of proteins; importin beta homolog; Active in protein import into the nucleus. Its major import substrate is transcription elongation factor TFIIS (1048 aa)
Karyopherin beta, responsible for import of the Toa1p-Toa2p complex into the nucleus; binds to nucleoporins Nup1p and Nup2p; may play a role in regulation of pleiotropic drug resistance; Nuclear transport factor (karyopherin) involved in protein transport between the cytoplasm and nucleoplasm. Required for the nuclear import of the complex composed the large subunit (TOA1) and the small subunit (TOA2) of the general transcription factor IIA (TFIIA). Required for the nuclear import of the RNR2- RNR4 heterodimer, also called beta-beta’ subunit, which corresponds to the small subunit of t [...] (1081 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)
Transportin or cytosolic karyopherin beta 2; functions in the rg-nuclear localization signal-mediated nuclear import/reimport of mRNA-binding proteins Nab2p and Hrp1p; regulates asymmetric protein synthesis in daughter cells during mitosis; Functions in nuclear protein import as nuclear transport receptor. Serves as receptor for arginine/glycine-rich nuclear localization signals (rg-NLS) and PY-NLS in cargo substrates. Its predominant cargo substrate seems to be mRNA-binding proteins. Required for nuclear transport of NAB2, HRP1/NAB4 and TFG2. Mediates docking of the importin/substrate [...] (918 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)
Karyopherin involved in nuclear import and export of proteins, including import of replication protein A and export of Swi6p, Far1p, and Pho4p; required for re-export of mature tRNAs after their retrograde import from the cytoplasm (1224 aa)
Nuclear import receptor, mediates the nuclear localization of proteins involved in mRNA-nucleus export; promotes dissociation of mRNAs from the nucleus-cytoplasm mRNA shuttling protein Npl3p; required for retrograde import of mature tRNAs; Involved in mRNA transport from nucleus to cytoplasm (972 aa)
