SMY2 Lillie SH and Brown SS  (1994) Immunofluorescence localization of the unconventional myosin, Myo2p, and the putative kinesin-related protein, Smy1p, to the same regions of polarized growth in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. J Cell Biol 125(4):825-42
Sequence Annotation Notes
2003-09-22The start site for SMY2/YBR172C was moved 150 nt (50 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.
