Oops--I had the wrong ORF name in this message. YMK1/MLF3 is YNL074C. 
Sorry for any confusion.

> The Saccharomyces Genome Database (SGD) has recently received a
> request to change the standard name of YNL073W from YMK1 to MLF3. The
> name YMK1 was used in a GenBank entry that has since been updated and
> no longer includes the name; in the meantime a paper describing mutant
> phenotypes has been published using the name MLF3. Further, one of the
> authors of the YMK1 GenBank entry has agreed to the proposed name
> change. MLF3 will become the standard name for YNL073W with the next
> database update. YMK1 will remain in the database as an alias.  Please
> notify the SGD curators if you have a reasonable objection to the new
> nomenclature.
