Nomenclature History Notes
2007-11-27Nomenclature of the aldehyde dehydrogenase-encoding genes was in flux before 1999, and in several cases the same gene name was assigned to different genes. The confusing issues, and the current nomenclature system, are explained in Navarro-Avino et al., Yeast 15(10A):829-42 (1999). Note that the name ALD1 is not in use as a standard name, since it was initially assigned to a sequence that later proved to be a cloning artifact (GenBank M57887.1).
