FDH2 / YPL275W Overview

Standard Name
FDH2 1
Systematic Name
Feature Type
NAD(+)-dependent formate dehydrogenase; may protect cells from exogenous formate; YPL275W and YPL276W comprise a continuous open reading frame in some S. cerevisiae strains but not in the genomic reference strain S288C 1
Name Description
Formate DeHydrogenase
Comparative Info
Sequence Details


The S. cerevisiae Reference Genome sequence is derived from laboratory strain S288C. Download DNA or protein sequence, view genomic context and coordinates. Click "Sequence Details" to view all sequence information for this locus, including that for other strains.

In strains S288C, BY4741, and W303, FDH2/YPL275W and YPL276W sequences overlap, sharing 17 nucleotides. A C>T substitution at position 436 in YPL276W generates a stop codon, truncating this ORF. Fourteen nucleotides upstream of this stop, an ATG represents the beginning of YPL275W. In CEN.PK113-7D, FDH2/YPL275W and YPL276W form a single ORF.

Phenotype Details


Phenotype annotations for a gene are curated single mutant phenotypes that require an observable (e.g., "cell shape"), a qualifier (e.g., "abnormal"), a mutant type (e.g., null), strain background, and a reference. In addition, annotations are classified as classical genetics or high-throughput (e.g., large scale survey, systematic mutation set). Whenever possible, allele information and additional details are provided. Click "Phenotype Details" to view all phenotype annotations and evidence for this locus as well as phenotypes it shares with other genes.

No phenotype data available.

Interaction Details


Interaction annotations are curated by BioGRID and include physical or genetic interactions observed between at least two genes. An interaction annotation is composed of the interaction type, name of the interactor, assay type (e.g., Two-Hybrid), annotation type (e.g., manual or high-throughput), and a reference, as well as other experimental details. Click "Interaction Details" to view all interaction annotations and evidence for this locus, including an interaction visualization.
