ICL2 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"ICL2" - 2-methylisocitrate lyase of the mitochondrial matrix, functions in the methylcitrate cycle to catalyze the conversion of 2-methylisocitrate to succinate and pyruvate in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
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 each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology

ICL22-methylisocitrate lyase of the mitochondrial matrix, functions in the methylcitrate cycle to catalyze the conversion of 2-methylisocitrate to succinate and pyruvate; ICL2 transcription is repressed by glucose and induced by ethanol; Catalyzes the formation of pyruvate and succinate from 2-methylisocitrate during the metabolism of endogenous propionyl- CoA. Does not act on isocitrate (575 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Malate synthase, enzyme of the glyoxylate cycle, involved in utilization of non-fermentable carbon sources; expression is subject to carbon catabolite repression; localizes in peroxisomes during growth in oleic acid medium; This isozyme is necessary for growth on acetate as sole C-source (554 aa)
Malate synthase, role in allantoin degradation unknown; expression sensitive to nitrogen catabolite repression and induced by allophanate, an intermediate in allantoin degradation; This isozyme is involved in the degradation of allantoin (purine catabolism) (554 aa)
Aconitase, required for the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle and also independently required for mitochondrial genome maintenance; phosphorylated; component of the mitochondrial nucleoid; mutation leads to glutamate auxotrophy; Catalyzes the isomerization of citrate to isocitrate via cis-aconitate, a step in the citric acid cycle. Can also provide minor contributions to the reversible dehydration of (R)- homocitrate to cis-homoaconitate, a step in the alpha-aminoadipate pathway for lysine biosynthesis. Plays also an essential role in mtDNA maintenance. May directly protect mtDNA from acc [...] (778 aa)
Dual specificity mitochondrial citrate and methylcitrate synthase; catalyzes the condensation of acetyl-CoA and oxaloacetate to form citrate and that of propionyl-CoA and oxaloacetate to form 2-methylcitrate; Dual specificity mitochondrial citrate and methylcitrate synthase with similar catalytic efficiency with both acetyl-CoA and propionyl-CoA (486 aa)
Alanine-glyoxylate aminotransferase (AGT), catalyzes the synthesis of glycine from glyoxylate, which is one of three pathways for glycine biosynthesis in yeast; has similarity to mammalian and plant alanine-glyoxylate aminotransferases; Has alanine-glyoxylate aminotransferase activity (385 aa)
Acetyl-coA synthetase isoform which, along with Acs2p, is the nuclear source of acetyl-coA for histone acetylation; expressed during growth on nonfermentable carbon sources and under aerobic conditions; Catalyzes the production of acetyl-CoA. Provides the acetyl-CoA source for histone acetylation in the nucleus. "Aerobic" isozyme of acetyl-coenzyme A synthetase, which supports growth on nonfermentable carbon sources such as glycerol and ethanol. May be required for assimilation of ethanol and acetate (713 aa)
Isocitrate lyase, catalyzes the formation of succinate and glyoxylate from isocitrate, a key reaction of the glyoxylate cycle; expression of ICL1 is induced by growth on ethanol and repressed by growth on glucose; Catalyzes the formation of succinate and glyoxylate from isocitrate, a key step of the glyoxylate cycle, which operates as an anaplerotic route for replenishing the tricarboxylic acid cycle. Required for growth on ethanol or acetate, but dispensable when fermentable carbon sources are available. Acts also on 2- methylisocitrate (557 aa)
Ureidoglycolate hydrolase, converts ureidoglycolate to glyoxylate and urea in the third step of allantoin degradation; expression sensitive to nitrogen catabolite repression; Catalyzes the catabolism of the allantoin degradation intermediate (S)-ureidoglycolate, generating urea and glyoxylate. Involved in the utilization of allantoin as secondary nitrogen source when primary sources are limiting (195 aa)
Putative mitochondrial aconitase isozyme; similarity to Aco1p, an aconitase required for the TCA cycle; expression induced during growth on glucose, by amino acid starvation via Gcn4p, and repressed on ethanol; Catalyzes the reversible dehydration of (R)-homocitrate to cis-homoaconitate, a step in the alpha-aminoadipate pathway for lysine biosynthesis (789 aa)
Cytochrome b subunit of succinate dehydrogenase (Sdh1p, Sdh2p, Sdh3p, Sdh4p), which couples the oxidation of succinate to the transfer of electrons to ubiquinone as part of the TCA cycle and the mitochondrial respiratory chain; Membrane-anchoring mono-heme cytochrome b subunit of succinate dehydrogenase (SDH) that is involved in system II of the mitochondrial electron transport chain and is responsible for transferring electrons from succinate to ubiquinone (coenzyme Q). SDH3 and SDH4 form the membrane dimer that anchors the catalytic dimer formed by SDH1 and SDH2 to the matrix surface [...] (198 aa)
