Gene Ontology Help

Mating-type MATalpha2-MATa1 complex Overview

GO Annotations consist of four mandatory components: a gene product, a term from one of the three Gene Ontology (GO) controlled vocabularies (Molecular Function, Biological Process, and Cellular Component), a reference, and an evidence code.

Transcriptional repressor with a role in determining the three cell types of Saccharomyces cerevisiae: the a and alpha haploid cells and the a/alpha diploid cell type. Binds to a 21-base pair DNA sequence, the haploid-specific gene (hsg) operator, to repress transcription of haploid-specific genes and of MATALPHA1 (P0CY06).
GO Slim Terms

The yeast GO Slim terms are higher level terms that best represent the major S. cerevisiae biological processes, functions, and cellular components. The GO Slim terms listed here are the broader parent terms for the specific terms to which this gene product is annotated, and thus represent the more general processes, functions, and components in which it is involved.

DNA binding, DNA-binding transcription factor activity, biological process
