STRING protein interaction network
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:
a 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 to each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
KIP2Kinesin-like protein KIP2; Kinesin-related motor protein involved in mitotic spindle positioning; stabilizes microtubules by targeting Bik1p to the plus end; functions as a microtubule polymerase and catastrophe inhibitor in vitro; Kip2p levels are controlled during the cell cycle. (706 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Nuclear fusion protein BIK1; Microtubule-associated protein; component of the interface between microtubules and kinetochore, involved in sister chromatid separation; essential in polyploid cells but not in haploid or diploid cells; ortholog of mammalian CLIP-170.
Protein BIM1; Microtubule plus end-tracking protein; together with Kar9p makes up the cortical microtubule capture site and delays the exit from mitosis when the spindle is oriented abnormally; homolog of human end binding protein 1 (EB1); Belongs to the MAPRE family.
Kinesin-like protein KIP3; Kinesin-related antiparallel sliding motor protein; involved in mitotic spindle positioning; sliding activity promotes bipolar spindle assembly and maintenance of genome stability; inhibits spindle elongation, destabilizing late anaphase spindle microtubules that polymerize beyond the midzone; Belongs to the TRAFAC class myosin-kinesin ATPase superfamily. Kinesin family. Kinesin II subfamily.
Kinesin-like protein KIP1; Kinesin-related motor protein; required for mitotic spindle assembly, chromosome segregation, and 2 micron plasmid partitioning; functionally redundant with Cin8p for chromosomal but not plasmid functions; Belongs to the TRAFAC class myosin-kinesin ATPase superfamily. Kinesin family. BimC subfamily.
Karyogamy protein KAR9; Spindle positioning factor; orients astral microtubules, connecting them to actin cables at the cortex with Bim1p and Myo2, resulting in proper spindle positioning; targeted for StuBL-dependent degradation at kinetochores by Slx5p-Slx8p, ensuring chromosome transmission fidelity and correct spindle positioning; role in karyogamy; localizes to the shmoo tip, the growing bud-tip, the nucleus, the kinetochore, the spindle and microtubules; homolog of adenomatous polyposis coli.
Cytoplasmic heavy chain dynein; microtubule motor protein; member of the AAA+ protein family, required for anaphase spindle elongation; involved in spindle assembly, chromosome movement, and spindle orientation during cell division, targeted to microtubule tips by Pac1p; motility along microtubules inhibited by She1p.
Mitotic spindle midzone-localized microtubule bundling protein; microtubule-associated protein (MAP) family member; required for spindle elongation and stabilization; undergoes cell cycle-regulated degradation by anaphase promoting complex; potential Cdc28p substrate; relative distribution to microtubules decreases upon DNA replication stress; Belongs to the MAP65/ASE1 family.
Kinesin-like protein CIN8; Kinesin motor protein; involved in mitotic spindle assembly and chromosome segregation.
Spindle pole body-associated protein VIK1; Protein that forms a kinesin-14 heterodimeric motor with Kar3p; localizes Kar3p at mitotic spindle poles; has a structure similar to a kinesin motor domain but lacks an ATP-binding site and is catalytically inactive; binds microtubules; required for sister chromatid cohesion; VIK1 has a paralog, CIK1, that arose from the whole genome duplication.
Spindle pole body-associated protein CIK1; Kinesin-associated protein; required for both karyogamy and mitotic spindle organization, interacts stably and specifically with Kar3p and may function to target this kinesin to a specific cellular role; locus encodes a long and short transcript with differing functions; CIK1 has a paralog, VIK1, that arose from the whole genome duplication.
