Nomenclature History Notes
DateNote
2003-12-09SAD1 has been used to refer to both RAD53/YPL153C, a checkpoint protein involved in DNA repair, and SAD1/YFR005C, a protein involved in mRNA splicing.
Other Notes
DateNote
2013-05-01Chen YC, et al. (2013) sequenced the rad53-1 allele and found a single G653E point mutation, which is identical to that reported for rad53-11.

DateNote
1996-09-21Edition 13: RAD53 has also been referred to as SAD1, but should not be confused with the SAD1 gene on chromosome III that appears to be involved in SnRNP assembly.
