Family

Velum formation protein 1-like (IPR019435)

Short name: Vel1-like

Family relationships

None.

Description

This is a small family of proteins from Saccharomyces and related species. The function is not known but member proteins are highly induced in zinc-depleted conditions [PMID: 12788058, PMID: 18203864] and have increased expression in NAP1-deletion mutants [PMID: 12788058]. The S. cerevisiae genes are named Vel1 by association with Velum formation in the wine making process.
