Systematic name YAL051W
Gene name OAF1
Aliases YAF1
Feature type ORF, Verified
Coordinates Chr I:48564..51707
Primary SGDID S000000048

Description of YAL051W: Oleate-activated transcription factor; acts alone and as a heterodimer with Pip2p; activates genes involved in beta-oxidation of fatty acids and peroxisome organization and biogenesis; OAF1 has a paralog, PIP2, that arose from the whole genome duplication[1][2][3]
