nomenclature changes

04/22/ 2016

Human name has changed for Entrez Gene: 3852. From keratin 5, type II to keratin 5


keratin 5.2 (krt5, krt5.2) renamed keratin 61 (krt61)

nomenclature changes to keratin gene family


Following an extensive assessment of the keratin gene family during annotation for X. laevis v 9.1 genome, Xenbase genome curators have made nomenclature updates for Xenopus keratin genes. The data analysis for all gene name changes include synteny analyses (which involves aligning with human and other species genomes, assessing sequence conservation, gene order, neighboring genes, location on the chromosome), and identifying the number of duplications in the X laevis S and L chromosomes, and then applying standardized gene nomenclature rules. For example, genes that have been determined to be copies or tandem duplications are sequentially numbered (ie, gene 1 gene 2, gene 3, etc.) and the gene symbol has a ‘point’ then the gene number such as krt12.5 (pronounced “k r t twelve point five”). Not all genes are found in both X. tropicalis and X. laevis. E.g. krt61 is on chromosome 2 in X. tropicalis and on Chromosome 2 in the X laevis.L, but does not occur on X. laevis.S.

Full nomenclature rules are accessible via a link on the Xenbase home page.

The following changes have been made and are reflected on Xenbase gene pages.
