YPR170W-B protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"YPR170W-B" - Putative protein of unknown function, conserved in fungi 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

YPR170W-BPutative protein of unknown function, conserved in fungi; partially overlaps the dubious genes YPR169W-A, YPR170W-A and YRP170C (85 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Protein of unknown function (140 aa)
Subunit of the HIR complex, a nucleosome assembly complex involved in regulation of histone gene transcription; mutants display synthetic defects with subunits of FACT, a complex that allows passage of RNA Pol II through nucleosomes; Component of the HIR complex, which functions as a histone chaperone that cooperates with ASF1 to promote replication-independent chromatin assembly. The HIR complex is also required for the periodic repression of three of the four histone gene loci during cell cycle as well as for autogenous regulation of the HTA1-HTB1 locus by H2A and H2B. DNA-binding by [...] (625 aa)
Subunit of the heterohexameric cochaperone prefoldin complex which binds specifically to cytosolic chaperonin and transfers target proteins to it; Binds specifically to cytosolic chaperonin (c-CPN) and transfers target proteins to it. Binds to nascent polypeptide chain and promotes folding in an environment in which there are many competing pathways for nonnative proteins (111 aa)
RNA binding protein, component of the U1 snRNP protein; mutants are defective in meiotic recombination and in formation of viable spores, involved in the formation of DSBs through meiosis-specific splicing of REC107 pre-mRNA; Nam8p regulon embraces /.../iotic pre-mRNAs of REC107, HFM1, AMA1 SPO22 and PCH2; the putative RNA binding domains RRM2 and RRM3 are required for Nam8p meiotic function; Acts as a suppressor of mitochondrial splicing deficiencies when overexpressed. Could be a non-essential component of the mitochondrial splicing machinery (523 aa)
Protein involved in early stages of meiotic recombination; involved in coordination between the initiation of recombination and the first division of meiosis; part of a complex (Rec107p-Mei4p-Rec114p) required for ds break formation; Essential for meiotic chromosome segregation. MER1 and MER2 proteins must interact directly or indirectly. MER1 might be responsible for regulating the MER2 gene and/or gene product. MER2 is not required for mitosis and mitotic DNA repair mechanisms. Component of the MER2-MEI4-REC114 complex which seems to be required for meiotic double-strand break (DSB) [...] (314 aa)
Meiosis specific DNA helicase involved in the conversion of double-stranded breaks to later recombination intermediates and in crossover control; catalyzes the unwinding of Holliday junctions; has ssDNA and dsDNA stimulated ATPase activity; DNA-dependent ATPase. Required in the control of double strand breaks transition and crossover during meiosis. Unwinds DNA in the 3’ TO 5’ direction. Prefers single-stranded DNA (1187 aa)
Alpha-tubulin; associates with beta-tubulin (Tub2p) to form tubulin dimer, which polymerizes to form microtubules; expressed at lower level than Tub1p; Tubulin is the major constituent of microtubules. It binds two moles of GTP, one at an exchangeable site on the beta chain and one at a non-exchangeable site on the alpha chain (445 aa)
mRNA-binding protein required for meiosis-specific mRNA splicing; required for chromosome pairing and meiotic recombination; Mer1p regulon embraces four essential meiotic pre-mRNAs- REC107, HFM1, AMA1 and SPO22; Required for chromosome pairing and genetic recombination. MER1 may function to bring the axial elements of the synaptonemal complex corresponding to homologous chromosomes together by initiating recombination. MER1 might be responsible for regulating the MER2 gene and/or gene product (270 aa)
Activator of meiotic anaphase promoting complex (APC/C); Cdc20p family member; required for initiation of spore wall assembly; required for Clb1p degradation during meiosis; Activator protein that regulates the ubiquitin ligase activity and substrate specificity of the anaphase promoting complex/cyclosome (APC/C). Required for the ubiquitination and subsequent degradation of the B-type cyclin CLB1 by the APC/C complex during meiosis. Required for meiosis I, late meiotic gene expression and spore wall assembly (593 aa)
