The S. cerevisiae open reading frame YBR026C was originally named MRF1.
At the time this name was published, there was another gene whose
standard name was MRF1, so YBR026C became known as MRF1'. Since that
time, the YBR026C gene product has been shown to be a 2-enoyl thioester
reductase, with similarity to Candida tropicalis Etr1p. It has now been
proposed that the genetic name for this gene be changed to ETR1.
The authors who originally named the gene MRF1 have agreed to the name
change. We will implement this change in SGD unless there are
objections from others in the yeast community. If there are problems
with this name change, please let us know as soon as possible.
