SUT643 4
Feature Type
ncRNA gene
Long noncoding RNA that governs mating-type control of gametogenesis; located in the IME1 promoter; in haploids, expression of IME1, the central inducer of gametogenesis, is inhibited in cis by transcription of IRT1, which recruits the Set2p histone methyltransferase and the Set3p histone deacetylase complex to establish repressive chromatin at the IME1 promoter 1 2 3
