High impact information on CTR86

  • This may imply that this open reading frame, called CTR86, shares a terminator region with THR4 [1].
  • The function of the protein encoded by CTR86 is not yet clear, but the fact that the upstream region contains a GCN4 responsive site suggests that the gene product may also be involved in amino acid biosynthesis [1].
