Alpha-Mating Factor

Molecule Structure Image



Alpha-Mating Factor is a active factor, excreted into the culture medium by haploid cells of the alpha mating type and acts on cells of the opposite mating type (type A). It mediates the conjugation process between the two types by inhibiting the initiation of DNA synthesis in type a cells and synchronizing them with type alpha.
