NameGrisea
OrganismPodospora anserina
Aging PhenotypeLife-span extension
Allele TypeRecessive
Strains
DescriptionIn GRISEA loss of function mutant, senescence is delayed two-fold (Osiewacz and Nuber, 1996).
Gene FunctionGRISEA codes for a copper modulated transcription factor involved in control of cellular copper homeostasis (Osiewacz and Nuber, 1996).
Other PhenotypesMutant has altered morphology and defects in formation of female gametangia (Borghouts et al., 1997).
HomologsS.c. MAC1, ACE1
