STRINGSTRING
MEP3 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"MEP3" - Ammonium permease of high capacity and low affinity 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

MEP3Ammonium permease of high capacity and low affinity; belongs to a ubiquitous family of cytoplasmic membrane proteins that transport only ammonium (NH4+); expression is under the nitrogen catabolite repression regulation ammonia permease; Transporter for ammonium (both charged and uncharged NH3 and NH4) to use as a nitrogen source. The affinity of MEP2 is about twenty times higher than that of MEP1. MEP3 has the lowest affinity (489 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
MEP2
Ammonium permease involved in regulation of pseudohyphal growth; belongs to a ubiquitous family of cytoplasmic membrane proteins that transport only ammonium (NH4+); expression is under the nitrogen catabolite repression regulation; Transporter for ammonium (both charged and uncharged NH3 and NH4) to use as a nitrogen source. The affinity of MEP2 is about twenty times higher than that of MEP1. MEP3 has the lowest affinity. Under ammonium limitation acts as an ammonium sensor, generating a signal that leads to pseudohyphal growth (499 aa)

MEP1
Ammonium permease; belongs to a ubiquitous family of cytoplasmic membrane proteins that transport only ammonium (NH4+); expression is under the nitrogen catabolite repression regulation; Transporter for ammonium (both charged and uncharged NH3 and NH4) to use as a nitrogen source. Can also transport methylamine. The affinity of MEP1 is about twenty times lower than that of MEP2. MEP3 has the lowest affinity (492 aa)

GPA2
Nucleotide binding alpha subunit of the heterotrimeric G protein; interacts with the receptor Gpr1p, has signaling role in response to nutrients; required for the recruitment of Ras-GTP at the plasma membrane and in the nucleus; Alpha subunit of the heterotrimeric guanine nucleotide- binding protein (G protein) involved in glucose-induced cAMP signaling. Binds to its cognate transmembrane receptor GPR1, which senses extracellular carbon sources, and activates cAMP-PKA signaling and governs diploid pseudohyphal differentiation and haploid invasive growth. The G protein beta-mimic protei [...] (449 aa)

GLT1
NAD(+)-dependent glutamate synthase (GOGAT), synthesizes glutamate from glutamine and alpha-ketoglutarate; with Gln1p, forms the secondary pathway for glutamate biosynthesis from ammonia; expression regulated by nitrogen source; Forms L-glutamate from L-glutamine and 2-oxoglutarate. Represents an alternative pathway to L-glutamate dehydrogenase for the biosynthesis of L-glutamate. Participates with glutamine synthetase in ammonia assimilation processes. The enzyme is specific for NADH, L-glutamine and 2-oxoglutarate (2145 aa)
   
   
  0.741
CAK1
Cyclin-dependent kinase-activating kinase required for passage through the cell cycle, phosphorylates and activates Cdc28p; nucleotide-binding pocket differs significantly from those of most other protein kinases (368 aa)
       
      0.682
GLN1
Glutamine synthetase (GS), synthesizes glutamine from glutamate and ammonia; with Glt1p, forms the secondary pathway for glutamate biosynthesis from ammonia; expression regulated by nitrogen source and by amino acid limitation (370 aa)
         
  0.656
GLN3
Transcriptional activator of genes regulated by nitrogen catabolite repression (NCR), localization and activity regulated by quality of nitrogen source; Positive nitrogen regulatory protein. Required for the activation of transcription of a number of genes (including the allantoin pathway genes) in response to the replacement of glutamine by glutamate as source of nitrogen. Binds the nitrogen upstream activation sequence of GLN1, the gene encoding glutamine synthetase. URE2 may catalytically inactivate GLN3 in response to an increase in the intracellular concentration of glutamine (730 aa)

GAP1
General amino acid permease; Gap1p senses the presence of amino acid substrates to regulate localization to the plasma membrane when needed; Permease for various amino acids as well as for GABA. Can also transport L-cysteine and beta-alanine (602 aa)
     
   
  0.571
URA2
Bifunctional carbamoylphosphate synthetase/aspartate transcarbamylase; catalyzes the first two enzymatic steps in the de novo biosynthesis of pyrimidines; both activities are subject to feedback inhibition by UTP; This protein is a "fusion" protein encoding three enzymatic activities of the pyrimidine pathway (GATase, CPSase, and ATCase) (2214 aa)
   
   
  0.532
AGP1
Low-affinity amino acid permease with broad substrate range, involved in uptake of asparagine, glutamine, and other amino acids; expression is regulated by the SPS plasma membrane amino acid sensor system (Ssy1p-Ptr3p-Ssy5p); Broad substrate range permease which transports asparagine and glutamine with intermediate specificity. Also transports Ala, Cys, Gly, Ile, Leu, Met, Phe, Ser, Thr, Tyr and Val. Important for the utilization of amino acids as a nitrogen source (633 aa)
