Saccharomyces cerevisiae (R64-1-1)

Repressor of G1 transcription; binds to SCB binding factor (SBF) at SCB target promoters in early G1; dilution of Whi5p concentration during cell growth determines cell size; phosphorylation of Whi5p by the CDK, Cln3p/Cdc28p relieves repression and promoter binding by Whi5, and contributes to both the determination of critical cell size at START and cell fate; periodically expressed in G1 [Source:SGD;Acc:S000005609]


Chromosome XV: 479,533-480,420 forward strand.
