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