Nomenclature History Notes
2003-09-10The standard gene name of ORF YMR159C was changed from APG16 to ATG16, as part of the unified autophagy nomenclature agreed upon by the yeast research community. Sept. 10, 2003
2005-01-04The genetically defined locus involved in autophagy, APG15, was found to be allelic with ATG16/YMR159C.
