MLC2 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"MLC2" - Regulatory light chain for the type II myosin Myo1p 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

MLC2Regulatory light chain for the type II myosin Myo1p; binds to an IQ motif of Myo1p, localization to the bud neck depends on Myo1p; involved in the disassembly of the Myo1p ring; Regulatory light chain for the class II conventional myosin MYO1. May play a role in the disassembly of the MYO1 ring at the bud neck at the end of its contraction during cytokinesis (163 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Type II myosin heavy chain, required for wild-type cytokinesis and cell separation; localizes to the actomyosin ring; binds to myosin light chains Mlc1p and Mlc2p through its IQ1 and IQ2 motifs respectively; Required for cell division (1928 aa)
Essential light chain for Myo1p, light chain for Myo2p; stabilizes Myo2p by binding to the neck region; interacts with Myo1p, Iqg1p, and Myo2p to coordinate formation and contraction of the actomyosin ring with targeted membrane deposition; Essential light chain for the class II conventional myosin MYO1. Acts also as light chain for the class V unconventional myosin MYO2 and for IQG1. Involved in the assembly of the contractile actomyosin ring at the bud neck during cytokinesis by recruiting IQG1 to the bud neck. Also required for chitin and MYO2-dependent secretory vesicle deposition [...] (149 aa)
Voltage-gated high-affinity calcium channel involved in calcium influx in response to some environmental stresses as well as exposure to mating pheromones; interacts and co-localizes with Mid1p, suggesting Cch1p and Mid1p function together; Voltage-gated, high-affinity calcium channel involved in calcium influx in response to some environmental stresses as well as exposure to mating pheromones. Functions together with MID1 to ensure that adequate levels of Ca(2+) are supplied to PMR1 to sustain secretion and growth. Required for growth in low-calcium environments (2039 aa)
NADP-cytochrome P450 reductase; involved in ergosterol biosynthesis; associated and coordinately regulated with Erg11p; This enzyme is required for electron transfer from NADP to cytochrome P450 in microsomes. It can also provide electron transfer to heme oxygenase and cytochrome B5. Involved in ergosterol biosynthesis. Has NADPH-dependent ferrireductase activity on the plasma membrane (691 aa)
Subunit alpha of assimilatory sulfite reductase, which converts sulfite into sulfide; This enzyme catalyzes the 6-electron reduction of sulfite to sulfide. This is one of several activities required for the biosynthesis of L-cysteine from sulfate (1035 aa)
Actin, structural protein involved in cell polarization, endocytosis, and other cytoskeletal functions; Actins are highly conserved proteins that are involved in various types of cell motility and are ubiquitously expressed in all eukaryotic cells (375 aa)
Fimbrin, actin-bundling protein; cooperates with Scp1p (calponin/transgelin) in the organization and maintenance of the actin cytoskeleton; Binds to actin, and functionally associates with actin structures involved in the development and maintenance of cell polarity (642 aa)
Adenylate cyclase, required for cAMP production and cAMP-dependent protein kinase signaling; the cAMP pathway controls a variety of cellular processes, including metabolism, cell cycle, stress response, stationary phase, and sporulation; Plays essential roles in regulation of cellular metabolism by catalyzing the synthesis of a second messenger, cAMP (2026 aa)
Outward-rectifier potassium channel of the plasma membrane with two pore domains in tandem, each of which forms a functional channel permeable to potassium; carboxy tail functions to prevent inner gate closures; target of K1 toxin; Outwardly rectifying potassium channel (691 aa)
Minor isoform of tropomyosin, binds to and stabilizes actin cables and filaments, which direct polarized cell growth and the distribution of several organelles; appears to have distinct and also overlapping functions with Tpm1p; Involved in cell morphogenesis. Binds to F-actin and stabilizes the actin filaments (161 aa)
