Dear all,

As you know, overexpression of sense gene may somehow cause a
loss-of-function phenotype, which is probably caused by cosuppression.
I'm wondering if there is any nomenclature about this cosuppression line?
Can I still describe it as 35S::YFG(your favor gene)? or YFG(RNAi)? or can
I say it is a new allele of yfg mutant and so describe it as yfg-1?

Thanks for your attention. Nick
