Nomenclature History Notes
DateNote
2014-07-16The Standard gene name of ORF YLR372W was changed from SUR4 (for "SUppressor of Rvs161 and rvs167 mutations") to ELO3 (for fatty acid ELOngation), which was an alias name. This change was made because (1) ELO3 was used more commonly in the literature to refer to the gene, and (2) the Standard gene name of ORF YCR034W was recently changed from FEN1 to ELO2, and changing SUR4 to ELO3 brought the fatty acid elongase nomenclature into uniformity (YJL196C/ELO1, YCR034W/ELO2, and YLR372W/ELO3).
