Systematic name MATA1
Gene name MATA1
Aliases A1
Feature type not in systematic sequence of S288C
Coordinates not mapped
Primary SGDID S000029660

Description of MATA1: Expressed copy (at MATa) of a1; homeobox-domain protein that, along with alpha2, represses transcription of haploid-specific genes in diploid cells; a1 sequence is not present in SGD because the sequenced S288C strain is MATalpha, not MATa[1][2][3][4]
