Standard Name Reference
MAD2 Li R and Murray AW  (1991) Feedback control of mitosis in budding yeast. Cell 66(3):519-31
Nomenclature History Notes
2002-07-16The genetically-defined MAD2 gene was originally identified as YJL031C (see Li R, et al. (1993) Nature 366(6450):82-4, and erratum in Nature (1994) 371(6496):438). It is now known that MAD2, involved in the mitotic spindle checkpoint, is equivalent to YJL030W, while YJL031C/BET4 encodes the alpha subunit of geranylgeranyltransferase type II.
