Nomenclature History Notes
DateNote
2005-08-16YDR513W was originally named TTR1, but the standard name was changed to GRX2 and TTR1 was made an alias name on August 16, 2005. This name change was approved by yeast researchers in this field. GRX2 was made the standard name to be consistent with genes of related function, and because it it the more commonly used name in the literature.
