FLO11 [YIR019C]

Flocculation protein FLO11; GPI-anchored cell surface glycoprotein (flocculin); required for pseudohyphal and invasive growth, flocculation, and biofilm formation; major determinant of colony morphology; transcription regulated by the MAPK pathway (Ste12p and Tec1p) and the cAMP pathway (Flo8p); required for formation of fibrous interconnections between cells of a wild strain; role in co-flocculation with other yeast species; cleaved and shed from cells, contributing to their surface properties; Belongs to the flocculin family. Highly divergent.
