  • CORRECTION: the prenyltransferase component is encoded by the gene adjacent to the MAD2 gene; Thus the conclusion that a prenyltransferase played a role in the spindle assembly checkpoint was wrong; the prenyltransferase-encoding gene has been renamed BET4 | PUBMED
  • Based on the alignment to Ashbya Brachat et al., start moved 198 bp upstream, added an intron. Coordinates of BET4/YJL031c changed from 387156 - 386284 (C) to 387354 - 387352, 387264 - 386284 (C), 984nt (367aa). | Evi | PUBMED
