Nomenclature History Notes
2013-11-06The standard name of ORF YIL053W was changed from RHR2 to GPP1 after obtaining consensus on the name change from researchers who have published information regarding this gene. The change was suggested because the GPP1 name is used almost exclusively in the literature.
Sequence Annotation Notes
2006-01-24Based on 5' SAGE transcription start site data and experimental verification of the start methionine, the start site for YIL053W was moved 63 bp downstream. As a consequence, YIL053W was shorted on the 5' end, altering the N-terminus and shortening the size of the predicted protein from 271 amino acids to 250 amino acids.
