nomenclature changes


HGNC and NCBIs RefSeq team have recently renamed all non-human open reading frame (ORF) genes.

The new Xenopus gene symbol syntax reflects the orthology to the human gene while starting with a prefix indictating location of the ORF on the Xenopus chromosome, i.e., the Xenopus chromosome number (c#), then 'h#' for the human chromosome number, then the same human 'orf #'. Old human 'C'orf' gene symbols are recorded as synonyms.


Xenopus gene nomenclature changed from  c10h17orf80, chromosome 10 C17orf80 homolog to mtnap1, mitochondrial nuclei associated protein 1.
