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:
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 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
AIM44Altered inheritance of mitochondria protein 44; Protein that regulates Cdc42p and Rho1p; functions in the late steps of cytokinesis and cell separation; sustains Rho1p at the cell division site after actomyosin ring contraction; inhibits the activation of Cdc42-Cla4 at the cell division site to prevent budding inside the old bud neck; transcription is regulated by Swi5p; null mutant displays elevated frequency of mitochondrial genome loss; relocalizes from bud neck to cytoplasm upon DNA replication stress (758 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Protein of unknown function; localizes to the bud neck and cytoplasm; interacts with Nap1p; may interact with ribosomes, based on co-purification experiments; potential Cdc28p substrate
Protein localized in the bud neck at G2/M phase; physically interacts with septins; possibly involved in a mitotic signaling network
Cytokinesis protein 2; Protein that regulates actin cytoskeleton organization; required for cytokinesis, actin cable organization, and secretory vesicle trafficking; localized to bud neck; phosphorylated by Dbf2p; regulates actomyosin ring dynamics and septin localization; contains an SH3 domain; N terminus controls cell size and levels of actin cables, while C terminus controls actin cable organization via direct regulation of the formin Bnr1p
Nucleosome assembly protein; Histone chaperone; involved in histone exchange by removing and replacing histone H2A-H2B dimers or histone variant dimers from assembled nucleosomes; involved in the transport of H2A and H2B histones to the nucleus; required for the regulation of microtubule dynamics during mitosis; interacts with mitotic cyclin Clb2p; controls bud morphogenesis; phosphorylated by CK2; protein abundance increases in response to DNA replication stress
Cell division control protein 42; Small rho-like GTPase; essential for establishment and maintenance of cell polarity; plays a role late in cell fusion via activation of key cell fusion regulator Fus2p; mutants have defects in the organization of actin and septins; human homolog CDC42 can complement yeast cdc42 mutant
Protein involved in bud site selection during bipolar budding; localization requires Rax2p; has similarity to members of the insulin-related peptide superfamily
GTP-binding protein of the rho subfamily of Ras-like proteins; involved in establishment of cell polarity; regulates protein kinase C (Pkc1p) and the cell wall synthesizing enzyme 1,3-beta-glucan synthase (Fks1p and Gsc2p)
Uncharacterized vacuolar membrane protein YJR054W; Potassium transporter that mediates K+ influx; activates high-affinity Ca2+ influx system (HACS) during mating pheromone response; expression up-regulated in response to alpha factor; localized to sites of polarized growth; member of a fungal-specific gene family; potential Cdc28p substrate; KCH1 has a paralog, PRM6, that arose from the whole genome duplication; To yeast YML047c
Uncharacterized protein YPL272C; Putative protein of unknown function; gene expression induced in response to ketoconazole; YPL272C is not an essential gene
1,3-beta-glucan synthase component FKS1; Catalytic subunit of 1,3-beta-D-glucan synthase; functionally redundant with alternate catalytic subunit Gsc2p; binds to regulatory subunit Rho1p; involved in cell wall synthesis and maintenance; localizes to sites of cell wall remodeling; FKS1 has a paralog, GSC2, that arose from the whole genome duplication
