Sequence Annotation Notes
DateNote
1999-07-17YER108C and YER109C were originally annotated as two separate open reading frames, but it has been demonstrated that they correspond to the FLO8 gene, which contains a nonsense mutation in the reference strain S288C - an A to G transition at position 431, changing amino acid 144 from a Trp to a stop. Therefore, they have been fused into one reading frame with an internal stop codon.
