STRINGSTRING
VIK1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"VIK1" - Protein that forms a complex with Kar3p at the spindle pole body, possible regulator of Kar3p function in microtubule-mediated processes 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

VIK1Protein that forms a complex with Kar3p at the spindle pole body, possible regulator of Kar3p function in microtubule-mediated processes; required for sister chromatid cohesion; has similarity to Cik1p; Targets and/or maintains KAR3 at the spindle pole body during vegetative growth (647 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
KAR3
Minus-end-directed microtubule motor; functions in mitosis and meiosis, localizes to the spindle pole body and localization is dependent on functional Cik1p, required for nuclear fusion during mating; potential Cdc28p substrate; Essential for yeast nuclear fusion during mating. KAR3 is a bifunctional protein having a kinesin-like motor domain joined to a distinct microtubule binding domain. It may mediate microtubule sliding during nuclear fusion and possibly mitosis. May interact with spindle microtubules to produce an inwardly directed force acting upon the poles. KAR3 function antag [...] (729 aa)

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; has similarity to Vik1p; A developmentally regulated protein important for microtubule functions. Targets KAR3 to the cytoplasmic microtubules during mating. Essential for KAR3 function during prophase of meiosis I. Required for interhomolog recombination, synapsis of homologous chromosomes and establishment of a meiosis I spindle (594 aa)
       
0.970
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; Required for assembly of the mitotic spindle. Interact with spindle microtubules to produce an outwardly directed force acting upon the poles. Following spindle assembly, CIN8 and KIP1 apparently act to oppose a force that draws separated poles back together. This force seems to be mediate by KAR3 (1111 aa)
         
  0.968
KIP3
Kinesin-related motor protein involved in mitotic spindle positioning (805 aa)
       
  0.965
KIP2
Kinesin-related motor protein involved in mitotic spindle positioning, stabilizes microtubules by targeting Bik1p to the plus end; Kip2p levels are controlled during the cell cycle; Required for assembly of the mitotic spindle (706 aa)
         
  0.945
MCM21
Protein involved in minichromosome maintenance; component of the COMA complex (Ctf19p, Okp1p, Mcm21p, Ame1p) that bridges kinetochore subunits that are in contact with centromeric DNA and the subunits bound to microtubules; Component of the central kinetochore, which mediates the attachment of the centromere to the mitotic spindle by forming essential interactions between the microtubule-associated outer kinetochore proteins and the centromere-associated inner kinetochore proteins. Required for establishing bipolar spindle- microtubule attachments and proper chromosome segregation (368 aa)
       
 
  0.849
CIN8
Kinesin motor protein involved in mitotic spindle assembly and chromosome segregation; Required for assembly of the mitotic spindle. Interacts with spindle microtubules to produce an outwardly directed force acting upon the poles. Following spindle assembly, CIN8 and KIP1 apparently act to oppose a force that draws separated poles back together. This force seems to be mediated by KAR3 (1000 aa)
         
  0.846
BIM1
Microtubule-binding protein that together with Kar9p makes up the cortical microtubule capture site and delays the exit from mitosis when the spindle is oriented abnormally; Binds microtubules (344 aa)
       
 
  0.760
SPC98
Component of the microtubule-nucleating Tub4p (gamma-tubulin) complex; interacts with Spc110p at the spindle pole body (SPB) inner plaque and with Spc72p at the SPB outer plaque; Involved in microtubule organization by the microtubule organizing center, the spindle pole body (SPB). Probably part of the microtubule attachment site at the SPB (846 aa)
       
 
  0.740
TUB1
Alpha-tubulin; associates with beta-tubulin (Tub2p) to form tubulin dimer, which polymerizes to form microtubules; Tubulin is the major constituent of microtubules. It binds two moles of GTP, one at an exchangeable site on the beta chain and one at a non-exchangeable site on the alpha chain (447 aa)
