Nomenclature History Notes
DateNote
2011-07-27This gene was originally named KEM1 (Kar-Enhancing Mutations). The name was changed to XRN1 (eXoRiboNuclease) based on a request (July 2011) from the community. The rationale being that researchers use the name XRN1 much more frequently when referring to YGL173C in the literature, the name XRN1 is more consistent with this gene product's role in vivo, and that the name XRN1 is the one used for the equivalent gene product in other organisms.
Mapping Notes
