| 2003-01-03||Due to a change to the systematic sequence of chromosome II (C deletion at 442868), YBR098W and YBR100W have been merged to one single ORF of 691 aa. MMS4 is the standard name for the new, elongated ORF after merging; YBR100W and SLX2 are its aliases. The new coordinates of MMS4/YBR098W are 441473-443548, for a coding sequence of 2076 nt.
We thank Jim Brown (firstname.lastname@example.org), and Kirk Ehmsen (email@example.com) for reporting this sequence error on Chr II, which was verified in the FY1679 (S288c derivative) strain background by SGD.
