STRINGSTRING
KES1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"KES1" - Member of the oxysterol binding protein family, which includes seven yeast homologs in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Nodes:
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:
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
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

KES1Member of the oxysterol binding protein family, which includes seven yeast homologs; involved in negative regulation of Sec14p-dependent Golgi complex secretory functions, peripheral membrane protein that localizes to the Golgi complex; Lipid transporter involved in lipid countertransport between the Golgi complex and membranes of the endoplasmic reticulum- specifically exchanges sterol with phosphatidylinositol 4-phosphate (PI4P), delivering sterol to the Golgi in exchange for PI4P, which is degraded by the SAC1 phosphatase in the endoplasmic reticulum (PubMed-16136145, PubMed-2216213 [...] (434 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
SEC14
Phosphatidylinositol/phosphatidylcholine transfer protein; involved in regulating PtdIns, PtdCho, and ceramide metabolism, products of which regulate intracellular transport and UPR; functionally homologous to mammalian PITPs; Required for transport of secretory proteins from the Golgi complex. Catalyzes the transfer of phosphatidylinositol and phosphatidylcholine between membranes in vitro. Essential for viability and secretion (304 aa)
     
 
  0.967
OSH3
Member of an oxysterol-binding protein family with seven members in S. cerevisiae; family members have overlapping, redundant functions in sterol metabolism and collectively perform a function essential for viability (996 aa)
       
 
  0.919
SAC1
Phosphatidylinositol phosphate (PtdInsP) phosphatase involved in hydrolysis of PtdIns[4]P; transmembrane protein localizes to ER and Golgi; involved in protein trafficking and processing, secretion, and cell wall maintenance; Phosphoinositide phosphatase that hydrolyzes PtdIns(3)P and PtdIns(4)P. Has low activity towards PtdIns(3,5)P2. May be involved in the coordination of the activities of the secretory pathway and the actin cytoskeleton (623 aa)
     
 
  0.871
PIK1
Phosphatidylinositol 4-kinase; catalyzes first step in the biosynthesis of phosphatidylinositol-4,5-biphosphate; may control cytokinesis through the actin cytoskeleton; Acts on phosphatidylinositol (PI) in the first committed step in the production of the second messenger inositol 1,4,5,- trisphosphate. PIK1 is part of a nuclear phosphoinositide cycle and could control cytokinesis through the actin cytoskeleton (1066 aa)
       
 
  0.828
SPO14
Phospholipase D; catalyzes the hydrolysis of phosphatidylcholine, producing choline and phosphatidic acid; involved in Sec14p-independent secretion; required for meiosis and spore formation; differently regulated in secretion and meiosis; participat /.../transcription initiation and/or early elongation of specific genes; interacts with "foot domain" of RNA polymerase II; deletion results in abnormal CTD-Ser5 phosphorylation of RNA polymerase II at specific promoter regions; Required for meiosis and spore formation. Seems to be involved in the coordinate induction of late meiotic events [...] (1683 aa)
       
 
  0.814
STT4
Phosphatidylinositol-4-kinase; functions in the Pkc1p protein kinase pathway; required for normal vacuole morphology, cell wall integrity, and actin cytoskeleton organization; Acts on phosphatidylinositol (PI) in the first committed step in the production of the second messenger inositol 1,4,5,- trisphosphate. STT4 functions in PKC1 protein kinase pathway (1900 aa)
       
 
  0.811
CAB4
Probable pantetheine-phosphate adenylyltransferase (PPAT), which catalyzes the fourth step in the biosynthesis of coenzyme A from pantothenate; null mutant lethality is complemented by E. coli coaD (encoding PPAT); widely conserved; Reversibly transfers an adenylyl group from ATP to 4’- phosphopantetheine, yielding dephospho-CoA (dPCoA) and pyrophosphate (By similarity). Plays a role in the physiological regulation of the intracellular CoA concentration (305 aa)
       
      0.806
SCS2
Integral ER membrane protein that regulates phospholipid metabolism via an interaction with the FFAT motif of Opi1p, also involved in telomeric silencing, disruption causes inositol auxotrophy above 34 degrees C, VAP homolog; Targets proteins containing a FFAT motif to endoplasmic reticulum membranes. Regulates phospholipid biosynthesis by modulating the subcellular localization of the transcriptional repressor OPI1 (244 aa)
       
 
  0.803
PXA1
Subunit of a heterodimeric peroxisomal ATP-binding cassette transporter complex (Pxa1p-Pxa2p), required for import of long-chain fatty acids into peroxisomes; similarity to human adrenoleukodystrophy transporter and ALD-related proteins; Involved in the import of activated long-chain fatty acids from the cytosol to the peroxisomal matrix (870 aa)
       
 
  0.776
URK1
Uridine/cytidine kinase, component of the pyrimidine ribonucleotide salvage pathway that converts uridine into UMP and cytidine into CMP; involved in the pyrimidine deoxyribonucleotide salvage pathway, converting deoxycytidine into dCMP; Catalyzes the conversion of uridine into UMP and cytidine into CMP in the pyrimidine salvage pathway (501 aa)
