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
PBI1Uncharacterized protein YPL272C; Putative protein of unknown function; gene expression induced in response to ketoconazole; YPL272C is not an essential gene (517 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Phosphatidylinositol transfer protein (PITP); downregulates Plb1p-mediated turnover of phosphatidylcholine; forms a complex with Psd2p which appears essential for maintenance of vacuolar PE levels; found in the cytosol and microsomes; homologous to Pdr16p; deletion affects phospholipid composition
Subunit of the BLOC-1 complex involved in endosomal maturation; null mutant is sensitive to drug inducing secretion of vacuolar cargo; GFP-fusion protein localizes to the endosome; Belongs to the KXD1 family
Uncharacterized protein YMR124W; Protein involved in septin-ER tethering; interacts with ER membrane protein, Scs2p, and Shs1p, a septin ring component, at bud neck to create ER diffusion barrier; GFP-fusion protein localizes to the cell periphery, cytoplasm, bud, and bud neck; interacts with Crm1p in two-hybrid assay; YMR124W has a paralog, YLR031W, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Protein SSD1; Translational repressor with a role in polar growth and wall integrity; regulated by Cbk1p phosphorylation to effect bud-specific translational control and localization of specific mRNAs; interacts with TOR pathway components; contains a functional N-terminal nuclear localization sequence and nucleocytoplasmic shuttling appears to be critical to Ssd1p function; Belongs to the RNR ribonuclease family
Altered 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
Integral ER membrane protein, regulates phospholipid metabolism; one of 6 proteins (Ist2p, Scs2p, Scs22p, Tcb1p, Tcb2p, Tcb3p) that connect ER to plasma membrane (PM) and regulate PI4P levels by controlling access of Sac1p phosphatase to substrate PI4P in the PM; interacts with FFAT motifs in Opi1p, Swh1p, Osh2p, and Osh3p; involved in telomeric silencing; VAP homolog; SCS2 has a paralog, SCS22, that arose from the whole genome duplication; Belongs to the VAMP-associated protein (VAP) (TC 9.B.17) family
SEC14 cytosolic factor; Phosphatidylinositol/phosphatidylcholine transfer protein; involved in regulating PtdIns, PtdCho, and ceramide metabolism, products of which regulate intracellular transport and UPR; has a role in localization of lipid raft proteins; functionally homologous to mammalian PITPs; SEC14 has a paralog, YKL091C, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Ubiquitin carboxyl-terminal hydrolase 1; Ubiquitin-specific protease; removes ubiquitin from ubiquitinated proteins; cleaves at the C terminus of ubiquitin fusions irrespective of their size; capable of cleaving polyubiquitin chains
Uncharacterized protein YOR238W; Putative protein of unknown function; green fluorescent protein (GFP)-fusion protein localizes to the cytoplasm
U3 small nucleolar RNA-associated protein 9; Nucleolar protein; component of the small subunit (SSU) processome containing the U3 snoRNA that is involved in processing of pre-18S rRNA
