MATA1

Locus Overview


Systematic Name
MATA1
SGD ID
S000029660
Aliases
A1
Feature Type
not in systematic sequence of S288C
Description
Expressed copy (at MATa) of a1; homeobox-domain protein that, along with alpha2, represses transcription of haploid-specific genes in diploid cells; MATa1 pre-mRNA splicing requires Bud13p and Ist3p; a1 sequence is not present in SGD because the sequenced S288C strain is MATalpha, not MATa 2 3 4 5 6
