MCUR1 protein (human) - STRING interaction network
"MCUR1" - Mitochondrial calcium uniporter regulator 1 in Homo sapiens
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

MCUR1Mitochondrial calcium uniporter regulator 1; Key regulator of mitochondrial calcium uniporter (MCU) required for calcium entry into mitochondrion. Plays a direct role in uniporter-mediated calcium uptake via a direct interaction with MCU. Probably involved in the assembly of the membrane components of the uniporter complex (uniplex); Belongs to the CCDC90 family (359 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
MCU
Calcium uniporter protein, mitochondrial; Mitochondrial inner membrane calcium uniporter that mediates calcium uptake into mitochondria. Constitutes the pore-forming and calcium-conducting subunit of the uniporter complex (uniplex). Activity is regulated by MICU1 and MICU2. At low Ca(2+) levels MCU activity is down- regulated by MICU1 and MICU2; at higher Ca(2+) levels MICU1 increases MCU activity. Mitochondrial calcium homeostasis plays key roles in cellular physiology and regulates cell bioenergetics, cytoplasmic calcium signals and activation of cell death pathways. Involved in buff [...] (351 aa)

MICU2
Calcium uptake protein 2, mitochondrial; Key regulator of mitochondrial calcium uniporter (MCU) required to limit calcium uptake by MCU when cytoplasmic calcium is low. MICU1 and MICU2 form a disulfide-linked heterodimer that stimulate and inhibit MCU activity, depending on the concentration of calcium. MICU2 acts as a gatekeeper of MCU that senses calcium level via its EF-hand domains- prevents channel opening at resting calcium, avoiding energy dissipation and cell-death triggering (434 aa)
           
  0.930
CCDC109B
Calcium uniporter regulatory subunit MCUb, mitochondrial; Negatively regulates the activity of MCU, the mitochondrial inner membrane calcium uniporter, and thereby modulates calcium uptake into the mitochondrion. Does not form functional calcium channels by itself. Mitochondrial calcium homeostasis plays key roles in cellular physiology and regulates cell bioenergetics, cytoplasmic calcium signals and activation of cell death pathways (336 aa)
           
  0.918
MICU1
Calcium uptake protein 1, mitochondrial; Key regulator of mitochondrial calcium uniporter (MCU) that senses calcium level via its EF-hand domains. MICU1 and MICU2 form a disulfide-linked heterodimer that stimulates and inhibits MCU activity, depending on the concentration of calcium. MICU1 acts both as an activator or inhibitor of mitochondrial calcium uptake. Acts as a gatekeeper of MCU at low concentration of calcium, preventing channel opening. Enhances MCU opening at high calcium concentration, allowing a rapid response of mitochondria to calcium signals generated in the cytoplasm. [...] (476 aa)

SMDT1
Essential MCU regulator, mitochondrial; Essential regulatory subunit of the mitochondrial calcium uniporter complex (uniplex), a complex that mediates calcium uptake into mitochondria. Required to bridge the calcium- sensing proteins MICU1 and MICU2 with the calcium-conducting subunit MCU. Plays a central role in regulating the uniplex complex response to intracellular calcium signaling. Acts by mediating activation of MCU and retention of MICU1 to the MCU pore, in order to ensure tight regulation of the uniplex complex and appropriate responses to intracellular calcium signaling; Belo [...] (107 aa)
           
  0.873
LETM1
Mitochondrial proton/calcium exchanger protein; Mitochondrial proton/calcium antiporter that mediates proton-dependent calcium efflux from mitochondrion. Crucial for the maintenance of mitochondrial tubular networks and for the assembly of the supercomplexes of the respiratory chain. Required for the maintenance of the tubular shape and cristae organization. In contrast to SLC8B1/NCLX, does not constitute the major factor for mitochondrial calcium extrusion; Belongs to the LETM1 family (739 aa)
       
 
  0.787
SLC25A23
Calcium-binding mitochondrial carrier protein SCaMC-3; Calcium-dependent mitochondrial solute carrier. Mitochondrial solute carriers shuttle metabolites, nucleotides, and cofactors through the mitochondrial inner membrane. May act as a ATP-Mg/Pi exchanger that mediates the transport of Mg-ATP in exchange for phosphate, catalyzing the net uptake or efflux of adenine nucleotides into or from the mitochondria. Acts as a regulator of mitochondrial calcium uptake via interaction with MCU and MICU1; EF-hand domain containing (468 aa)
           
  0.760
MICU3
Calcium uptake protein 3, mitochondrial; May play a role in mitochondrial calcium uptake; EF-hand domain containing (530 aa)

MYLK4
Myosin light chain kinase family member 4; Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. CAMK Ser/Thr protein kinase family (388 aa)

OTOGL
Otogelin-like protein; Otogelin like (2344 aa)
