CUR1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"CUR1" - Protein of unknown function involved in destabilization of [URE3] prions 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

CUR1Protein of unknown function involved in destabilization of [URE3] prions; similar in sequence to Btn2p; Involved in the curing of prion [URE3]. Nuclear localization of this protein may suggest a role in transcription regulation, so it might exert an effect on [URE3] through known prion-curing chaperones or BTN2 (252 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
v-SNARE binding protein that facilitates specific protein retrieval from a late endosome to the Golgi; modulates arginine uptake, possible role in mediating pH homeostasis between the vacuole and plasma membrane H(+)-ATPase; V-SNARE binding protein that facilitates specific protein retrieval from a late endosome to the Golgi. Modulates the rate of arginine uptake. Involved in pH homeostasis. Required for the correct localization of IST2. May be involved in ion homeostasis together with IST2 (410 aa)
Small heat shock protein (sHSP) with chaperone activity; forms barrel-shaped oligomers that suppress unfolded protein aggregation; involved in cytoskeleton reorganization after heat shock (375 aa)
Type II HSP40 co-chaperone that interacts with the HSP70 protein Ssa1p; not functionally redundant with Ydj1p due to due to substrate specificity; shares similarity with bacterial DnaJ proteins; Required for nuclear migration during mitosis. It is required for the normal initiation of translation. Might mediate the dissociation of a specific protein complex of the translation machinery. Essential for viability (352 aa)
Catalytic subunit of a tRNA methyltransferase complex; Trm8p and Trm82p comprise an enzyme that catalyzes a methyl-transfer from S-adenosyl-l-methionine to the N(7) atom of guanine at position 46 in tRNA; Trm8 lacks catalytic activity if not bound t /.../2p; Required for the formation of N(7)-methylguanine at position 46 (m7G46) in tRNA, a modification required to maintain stability of tRNAs; its absence resulting in tRNA decay. In the complex, it is required to stabilize and induce conformational changes of the catalytic subunit (444 aa)
Hsp70 (Ssa1p) nucleotide exchange factor, cytosolic homolog of Sil1p, which is the nucleotide exchange factor for BiP (Kar2p) in the endoplasmic reticulum; Involved in protein translation, propagation of [PSI+] prions, and polyamine tolerance. Functions as a nucleotide exchange factor (NEF), which accelerates the release of ADP, for the cytosolic Hsp70 chaperone SSA1 and the ribosome-associated Hsp70 chaperone SSB1. Required for fully efficient Hsp70-mediated folding of proteins (290 aa)
Protein with a possible role in phospholipid biosynthesis, based on inositol-excreting phenotype of the null mutant and its suppression by exogenous choline; Involved in phospholipid biosynthesis (246 aa)
Cytoplasmic hydrophilin with a role in dessication resistance; expression induced by osmotic stress, starvation and during stationary phase; GFP-fusion protein is induced by the DNA-damaging agent MMS (104 aa)
Oligomeric mitochondrial matrix chaperone; cooperates with Ssc1p in mitochondrial thermotolerance after heat shock; able to prevent the aggregation of misfolded proteins as well as resolubilize protein aggregates; Required, in concert with mitochondrial Hsp70 (SSC1), for the dissociation, resolubilization and refolding of aggregates of damaged proteins in the mitochondrial matrix after heat stress. May extract proteins from aggregates by unfolding and threading them in an ATP-dependent process through the axial channel of the protein hexamer, after which they can be refolded by the Hsp [...] (811 aa)
Nitrogen catabolite repression transcriptional regulator that acts by inhibition of GLN3 transcription in good nitrogen source; has glutathione peroxidase activity and can mutate to acquire GST activity; altered form creates [URE3] prion; Plays an important role in nitrogen catabolite repression. Down-regulates the expression of many genes involved in nitrogen utilization by inhibiting the GATA transcriptional activators GLN3 and GAT1. Under good nitrogen conditions, binds to the phosphorylated forms of GLN3 and GAT1 and sequesters them in the cytoplasm, preventing transcription of gen [...] (354 aa)
[PIN(+)] prion, an infectious protein conformation that is generally an ordered protein aggregate; Transferable epigenetic modifier which forms a prion responsible for the non-Mendelian trait [PIN+]. The native function of the soluble protein is unknown (405 aa)
