nomenclature updates

Based on synteny ( conserved gene order) and reciprocal BLASTp matches to human GUCA1B (NP_002089.4), this gene has been renamed guca1b-like as it is not considered a true ortholg of human GUCA1B. This gene is only ~63% identical to the human protein.

X. tropicalis Entrez GeneID:100489509, is now considered the true GUCA1B orthologue, gucab1b, sharing 78% sequence identity to the human gene, and it sits tail-to-tail with guca1a on Chromsome 2, and is represented on XB-GENEPAGE-22172598.
