Saccharomyces cerevisiae (R64-1-1)

Transcription factor that recruits Mediator and Swi/Snf complexes; activates transcription of genes expressed at the M/G1 phase boundary and in G1 phase; required for expression of the HO gene controlling mating type switching; localization to nucleus occurs during G1 and appears to be regulated by phosphorylation by Cdc28p kinase; SWI5 has a paralog, ACE2, that arose from the whole genome duplication [Source:SGD;Acc:S000002553]


Chromosome IV: 748,613-750,742 reverse strand.
