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

Gene Fusion
COA2Cytochrome oxidase assembly factor; null mutation results in respiratory deficiency with specific loss of cytochrome oxidase activity; functions downstream of assembly factors Mss51p and Coa1p and interacts with assembly factor Shy1p (68 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Cytochrome oxidase assembly protein SHY1; Mitochondrial inner membrane protein required for complex IV assembly; associates with complex IV assembly intermediates and complex III/complex IV supercomplexes; similar to human SURF1 involved in Leigh Syndrome; complex IV is also known as cytochrome c oxidase
Metalloendopeptidase of the mitochondrial inner membrane; important for adaptive responses to various homeostatic insults, preservation of normal mitochondrial function under damage-eliciting conditions, and stability of respiratory supercomplexes; involved in turnover of membrane-embedded proteins; mediates degradation of Cox1p in coa2 mutant cells; zebrafish ortholog has a role in organ development and mouse ortholog is also required for respiratory supercomplex stability
Protoheme IX farnesyltransferase, mitochondrial; Heme A:farnesyltransferase; catalyzes first step in conversion of protoheme to heme A prosthetic group required for cytochrome c oxidase activity; human ortholog COX10 can complement yeast cox10 null mutant; human ortholog COX10 is associated with mitochondrial disorders
Subunit VI of cytochrome c oxidase (Complex IV); Complex IV is the terminal member of the mitochondrial inner membrane electron transport chain; expression is regulated by oxygen levels
Cytochrome c oxidase assembly protein COX15; Protein required for the hydroxylation of heme O to form heme A; heme A is an essential prosthetic group for cytochrome c oxidase
Cytochrome oxidase assembly factor 4; Twin Cx(9)C protein involved in cytochrome c oxidase organization; organization includes assembly or stability; localizes to the mitochondrial intermembrane space via the Mia40p-Erv1p system; interacts genetically with CYC1 and with cytochrome c oxidase assembly factors; Belongs to the COA4 family
Putative thioredoxin peroxidase sco2; Protein anchored to mitochondrial inner membrane; may have a redundant function with Sco1p in delivery of copper to cytochrome c oxidase; interacts with Cox2p; SCO2 has a paralog, SCO1, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Copper-binding protein of mitochondrial inner membrane; required for cytochrome c oxidase activity and respiration; may function to deliver copper to cytochrome c oxidase; similar to thioredoxins; SCO1 has a paralog, SCO2, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Protein required for cytochrome c oxidase assembly; located in the cytosol and mitochondrial intermembrane space; putative copper metallochaperone that delivers copper to cytochrome c oxidase; contains twin cysteine-x9-cysteine motifs
Cytochrome c oxidase assembly protein COX11, mitochondrial; Protein required for delivery of copper to Cox1p; mitochondrial inner membrane protein; association with mitochondrial ribosomes suggests that copper delivery may occur during translation of Cox1p
