Sequence Annotation Notes
DateNote
2003-09-22Based on the automated comparison of closely related Saccharomyces species by Kellis et al., the start site for VPS72/YDR485C was moved 45 nt (15 codons) downstream. 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.
