AQY1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"AQY1" - Spore-specific water channel 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

AQY1Spore-specific water channel; mediates the transport of water across cell membranes, developmentally controlled; may play a role in spore maturation, probably by allowing water outflow, may be involved in freeze tolerance; Water channel required to facilitate the transport of water across membranes. Involved in sporulation, freeze tolerance and osmotolerance (By similarity). Is non-functional in most laboratory strains (305 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Water channel that mediates water transport across cell membranes; only expressed in proliferating cells; controlled by osmotic signals; may be involved in freeze tolerance; disrupted by a stop codon in many S. cerevisiae strains; Water channel required to facilitate the transport of water across membranes. Involved in freeze tolerance, osmotolerance and cell flocculation in liquid cultures (By similarity). Is non-functional in most laboratory strains (149 aa)
cAMP-dependent protein kinase catalytic subunit; promotes vegetative growth in response to nutrients via the Ras-cAMP signaling pathway; inhibited by regulatory subunit Bcy1p in the absence of cAMP; partially redundant with Tpk2p and Tpk3p (397 aa)
Regulatory subunit of the cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA), a component of a signaling pathway that controls a variety of cellular processes, including metabolism, cell cycle, stress response, stationary phase, and sporulation; Regulatory subunit of the cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA), an effector of the Ras/cAMP pathway. Inhibits PKA activity in the absence of cAMP. cAMP activates PKA and promotes growth and proliferation in response to good nutrient conditions. Together with ZDS1, provides a negative feedback control on the cell wall integrity-signaling pathway by [...] (416 aa)
Glycerol kinase, converts glycerol to glycerol-3-phosphate; glucose repression of expression is mediated by Adr1p and Ino2p-Ino4p; derepression of expression on non-fermentable carbon sources is mediated by Opi1p and Rsf1p (709 aa)
Putative protein; in the Sigma 1278B strain background YLL053C is contiguous with AQY2 which encodes an aquaporin (152 aa)
NAD(+)-dependent glutamate synthase (GOGAT), synthesizes glutamate from glutamine and alpha-ketoglutarate; with Gln1p, forms the secondary pathway for glutamate biosynthesis from ammonia; expression regulated by nitrogen source; Forms L-glutamate from L-glutamine and 2-oxoglutarate. Represents an alternative pathway to L-glutamate dehydrogenase for the biosynthesis of L-glutamate. Participates with glutamine synthetase in ammonia assimilation processes. The enzyme is specific for NADH, L-glutamine and 2-oxoglutarate (2145 aa)
Plasma membrane channel, member of major intrinsic protein (MIP) family; involved in efflux of glycerol and in uptake of acetic acid and the trivalent metalloids arsenite and antimonite; phosphorylated by Hog1p MAPK under acetate stress; Channel protein for glycerol. Has a role in both glycerol influx and efflux. Plays a role in osmoregulation- under osmotic stress the channel is apparently closed to allow accumulation of glycerol in the cell under hyperosmotic conditions (669 aa)
Cystathionine beta-synthase, catalyzes synthesis of cystathionine from serine and homocysteine, the first committed step in cysteine biosynthesis; responsible for hydrogen sulfide generation; mutations in human ortholog cause homocystinuria (507 aa)
Mitochondrial glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase; expression is repressed by both glucose and cAMP and derepressed by non-fermentable carbon sources in a Snf1p, Rsf1p, Hap2/3/4/5 complex dependent manner (649 aa)
Essential 121kDa subunit of the exocyst complex (Sec3p, Sec5p, Sec6p, Sec8p, Sec10p, Sec15p, Exo70p, and Exo84p), which has the essential function of mediating polarized targeting of secretory vesicles to active sites of exocytosis; Component of the exocyst complex involved in the docking of exocytic vesicles with fusion sites on the plasma membrane (1065 aa)
