YNL054W-B Feature History Help

Other Notes
2000-08-17Gag processing produces capsid proteins. Pol is cleaved to produce protease, reverse transcriptase and integrase activities.
2013-02-15YNL054W-B was changed from pseudogene to transposable_element_gene. It had been erroneously annotated as a pseudogene based on Kim et al. 1998 which stated that a single nucleotide insertion "would likely render [it] nonfunctional". Lawler et al. 2001 later showed that the insertion was a +1 translational frameshift.
