Short name: Ste12

Family relationships

None.

Description

This entry include a group of fungal transcription factors, including Ste12, Cph1 and SteA. In S. cerevisiae, Ste12 mediates transcriptional induction of cell type-specific genes in response to pheromones [PMID: 2558054, PMID: 8339934]. Aspergillus nidulans steA is required for sexual reproduction [PMID: 10792717].
