CHS3/YBR023C Locus History Help

Nomenclature History
Standard Name Reference
CHS3 Breitenbach, M.  (1992) Personal Communication, Mortimer Map Edition 11
Other Name(s)Reference
CAL1 Takita MA and Castilho-Valavicius B  (1993) Absence of cell wall chitin in Saccharomyces cerevisiae leads to resistance to Kluyveromyces lactis killer toxin. Yeast 9(6):589-98
KTI2 Butler AR, et al.  (1991) Intracellular expression of Kluyveromyces lactis toxin gamma subunit mimics treatment with exogenous toxin and distinguishes two classes of toxin-resistant mutant. Yeast 7(6):617-25
Nomenclature History Notes
2002-10-16CAL5, an alias gene name for CHS3, was changed to CAL1.
2003-12-09CAL1 has been used to refer to both CDC43/YGL155W, which encodes a subunit of protein geranylgeranyltransferase, and CHS3/YBR023C, which encodes chitin synthase 3.
Mapping Notes
1992-10-01Edition 11: csd2 and dit101 are allelic; csd2 is about 1kb distal to fur4

1994-08-01Edition 12: CHS3 has also been called CAL1, but should not be confused with the geranylgeranyltransferase CDC43/CAL1/YGL155W.
