Nomenclature History Notes
2009-08-03The standard name of YIL146C was changed from ECM37 (ExtraCellular Mutant) to ATG32 (AuTophaGy related) based on consensus of the YIL146C research community that ATG32 more accurately reflects the function of the protein. YIL146C was originally isolated in a large-scale screen for mutants with altered sensitivity to calcofluor white. However, recent studies indicate its direct role in mitophagy.
