Description

This entry represents fungal proteins containing GATA domains, including nitrogen regulatory protein areA, a transcription activator that binds the consensus DNA element 5'-CGATAG-3' and mediates nitrogen metabolite repression [PMID: 1970293]. The entry also contains P34072 that is thought to be a negative regulator of RAS-cAMP pathway in S. cerevisiae and the S. pombe member is a GAF1 transcription factor Q10280.
