Locus Overview


Systematic Name
HMR
SGD ID
S000029655
Feature Type
silent_mating_type_cassette_array
Description
Mating-type cassette - right; unexpressed complete copy of the mating-type genes, silenced by the Sir2 histone deacetylase and its associated SIR1, SIR3 and SIR4 proteins; mating-type switching involves replacement of the Ya or Yalpha sequences present at the MAT locus with either the a or alpha genes located at one of the HM loci in a process stimulated by the HO endonuclease; sequence replacement occurs by gene conversion, leaving the donor unaltered 1 2
