Saccharomyces cerevisiae (R64-1-1)
Description

Mating pheromone alpha-factor, made by alpha cells; interacts with mating type a cells to induce cell cycle arrest and other responses leading to mating; also encoded by MF(ALPHA)2, although MF(ALPHA)1 produces most alpha-factor; binds copper(II) ions [Source:SGD;Acc:S000006108]

Synonyms
