flocculin FLO1
Feature Type
ORF , Verified
Description
Lectin-like protein involved in flocculation; cell wall protein that binds mannose chains on the surface of other cells, confers floc-forming ability that is chymotrypsin sensitive and heat resistant; important for co-flocculation with other yeasts, mediating interaction with specific species; FLO1 has a paralog, FLO5, that arose from a segmental duplication 1 2 3 4
Paralog
FLO5 3
