RDH54/YBR073W Locus History Help

Nomenclature History
Standard Name Reference
RDH54 Klein HL  (1997) RDH54, a RAD54 homologue in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, is required for mitotic diploid-specific recombination and repair and for meiosis. Genetics 147(4):1533-43
Other Name(s)Reference
TID1 Dresser ME, et al.  (1997) DMC1 functions in a Saccharomyces cerevisiae meiotic pathway that is largely independent of the RAD51 pathway. Genetics 147(2):533-44
Sequence Annotation Notes
2003-09-22The start site for RDH54/YBR073W was moved 102 nt (34 codons) downstream based on the automated comparison of closely-related Saccharomyces species. Evidence supporting this change includes: 1) This is the predicted start methionine in the majority of Saccharomyces species orthologs analyzed by Kellis et al. and/or Cliften et al.; 2) Significant sequence conservation begins abruptly at this predicted start methionine.

2009-05-07The start site for RDH54/YBR073W was reinstated 102 nt (34 codons) upstream. This is a reversal of the start site change made to this ORF on 2003-09-22. Thank you to Nancy Hollingsworth for bringing this issue to our attention.

2011-02-03Nucleotide substitutions within the coding region of RDH54/YBR073W resulted in an altered protein sequence. The start, stop, and reading frame remain the same, but protein residue 752 is now Alanine rather than Arginine.
