STRINGSTRING
KRE6 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"KRE6" - Type II integral membrane protein required for beta-1,6 glucan biosynthesis 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

KRE6Type II integral membrane protein required for beta-1,6 glucan biosynthesis; putative beta-glucan synthase; localizes to the ER, plasma membrane, sites of polarized growth and secretory vesicles; functionally redundant with Skn1p; Involved in the synthesis of (1->6)- and (1->3)-beta-D- glucan polymers of the yeast cell wall in vivo. It is required for full activity of beta-glucan synthase in vitro. May be involved in the maturation and transport of cell wall proteins (CWP) to the cell wall. May act as a transglucosidase and contribute to the construction of a protein-bound glucan-struc [...] (720 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
KRE5
Protein required for beta-1,6 glucan biosynthesis; mutations result in aberrant morphology and severe growth defects; Required for (1->6)-beta-D-glucan synthesis and normal cell growth (1365 aa)

KEG1
Integral membrane protein of the ER; physically interacts with Kre6p; has a role in the synthesis of beta-1,6-glucan in the cell wall; required for cell viability; Involved in the biosynthesis of (1->6)-beta-D-glucan polymers of the cell wall. Required for viability. Involved in maintaining chromosome stability (200 aa)

PKC1
Protein serine/threonine kinase essential for cell wall remodeling during growth; localized to sites of polarized growth and the mother-daughter bud neck; homolog of the alpha, beta, and gamma isoforms of mammalian protein kinase C (PKC); Required for cell growth and for the G2->M transition of the cell division cycle. Mediates a protein kinase cascade; it activates BCK1 which itself activates MKK1/MKK2 (1151 aa)

KRE9
Glycoprotein involved in cell wall beta-glucan assembly; null mutation leads to severe growth defects, aberrant multibudded morphology, and mating defects; Involved in cell wall beta(1->6) glucan synthesis (276 aa)

GAS1
Beta-1,3-glucanosyltransferase, required for cell wall assembly and also has a role in transcriptional silencing; localizes to the cell surface via a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchor; also found at the nuclear periphery; Splits internally a 1,3-beta-glucan molecule and transfers the newly generated reducing end (the donor) to the non- reducing end of another 1,3-beta-glucan molecule (the acceptor) forming a 1,3-beta linkage, resulting in the elongation of 1,3- beta-glucan chains in the cell wall. Involved in cell wall biosynthesis and morphogenesis (559 aa)

KRE1
Cell wall glycoprotein involved in beta-glucan assembly; serves as a K1 killer toxin membrane receptor; Involved in a late stage of cell wall 1,6-beta-glucan synthesis and assembly. Has a structural, rather than enzymic, function within cell wall 1,6-beta-glucan assembly and architecture, possibly by being involved in covalently cross- linking 1,6-beta-glucans to other cell wall components such as 1,3-beta-glucan, chitin and certain mannoproteins. Acts as the plasma membrane receptor for the yeast K1 viral toxin (313 aa)

FKS1
Catalytic subunit of 1,3-beta-D-glucan synthase, functionally redundant with alternate catalytic subunit Gsc2p; binds to regulatory subunit Rho1p; involved in cell wall synthesis and maintenance; localizes to sites of cell wall remodeling; Alternate catalytic subunit of the 1,3-beta-glucan synthase (GS). Synthesizes 1,3-beta-glucan, a major structural component of the yeast cell wall. Involved in cell wall synthesis, maintenance and cell wall remodeling (1876 aa)

ROT1
Molecular chaperone involved in protein folding in the ER; mutation causes defects in cell wall synthesis and in lysis of autophagic bodies, suppresses tor2 mutations, and is synthetically lethal with kar2-1 and with rot2 mutations; Required for normal levels of the cell wall 1,6-beta- glucan. Involved in a protein folding machinery chaperoning proteins acting in various physiological processes including cell wall synthesis and lysis of autophagic bodies.
