STRINGSTRING
TAZ1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"TAZ1" - Lyso-phosphatidylcholine acyltransferase, required for normal phospholipid content of mitochondrial membranes 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

TAZ1Lyso-phosphatidylcholine acyltransferase, required for normal phospholipid content of mitochondrial membranes; may remodel acyl groups of cardiolipin in the inner membrane; human ortholog tafazzin is implicated in Barth syndrome; Acyltransferase which mediates the conversion of 1-acyl- sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (LPC) into phosphatidylcholine (PC). Displays a broad LPC fatty acyl chain substrate specificity utilizing LPC molecules ranging in length from C-10 to C-20. Does not utilize other lysolipids than LPC as acceptor. Also shows acyl-CoA-independent acyltransferase activity. Requi [...] (381 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
ALE1
Broad-specificity lysophospholipid acyltransferase, part of MBOAT family of membrane-bound O-acyltransferases; key component of Lands cycle; may have role in fatty acid exchange at sn-2 position of mature glycerophospholipids; Membrane-bound O-acyltransferase that mediates the incorporation of unsaturated acyl chains into the sn-2 position of phospholipids. Preferentially acylates lysophosphocholine, but also lysophosphoethanolamine and lysophosphatidylglycerol (619 aa)

CRD1
Cardiolipin synthase; produces cardiolipin, which is a phospholipid of the mitochondrial inner membrane that is required for normal mitochondrial membrane potential and function; also required for normal vacuolar ion homeostasis; Catalyzes the synthesis of cardiolipin (CL) (diphosphatidylglycerol) by specifically transferring a phosphatidyl group from CDP-diacylglycerol to phosphatidylglycerol (PG). CL is a key phospholipid in mitochondrial membranes and plays important roles in maintaining the functional integrity and dynamics of mitochondria under both optimal and stress conditions (283 aa)

TOM40
Component of the TOM (translocase of outer membrane) complex responsible for recognition and initial import steps for all mitochondrially directed proteins; constitutes the core element of the protein conducting pore; Channel-forming protein essential for import of protein precursors into mitochondria (387 aa)
     
  0.945
TIM10
Essential protein of the mitochondrial intermembrane space, forms a complex with Tim9p (TIM10 complex) that delivers hydrophobic proteins to the TIM22 complex for insertion into the inner membrane; Mitochondrial intermembrane chaperone that participates in the import and insertion of multi-pass transmembrane proteins into the mitochondrial inner membrane. Also required for the transfer of beta-barrel precursors from the TOM complex to the sorting and assembly machinery (SAM complex) of the outer membrane. Acts as a chaperone-like protein that protects the hydrophobic precursors from ag [...] (93 aa)

TGL4
Multifunctional triacylglycerol lipase, steryl ester hydrolase, and Ca2+-independent phospholipase A2; catalyzes acyl-CoA dependent acylation of LPA to PA; required with Tgl3p for timely bud formation; phosphorylated and activated by Cdc28p; Releases specific fatty acids from neutral lipid triacylglycerols (TAG) thereby supplying fatty acids to a general acylation process. May have a specific role in sporulation (910 aa)

TIM23
Essential component of the Translocase of the Inner Mitochondrial membrane (TIM23 complex); involved in protein import into mitochondrial matrix and inner membrane; with Tim17p, contributes to architecture and function of the import channel; Essential component of the TIM23 complex, a complex that mediates the translocation of transit peptide-containing proteins across the mitochondrial inner membrane (222 aa)

TIM54
Component of the mitochondrial TIM22 complex involved in insertion of polytopic proteins into the inner membrane; Essential component of the TIM22 complex, a complex that mediates the import and insertion of multi-pass transmembrane proteins into the mitochondrial inner membrane. The TIM22 complex forms a twin-pore translocase that uses the membrane potential as external driving force. Its precise function within the TIM22 complex is unclear (478 aa)

TIM22
Essential core component of the mitochondrial TIM22 complex involved in insertion of polytopic proteins into the inner membrane; forms the channel through which proteins are imported; Essential core component of the TIM22 complex, a complex that mediates the import and insertion of multi-pass transmembrane proteins, such as mitochondrial carrier family members, into the mitochondrial inner membrane. In the TIM22 complex, it constitutes the voltage-activated and signal-gated channel.
