Is the proper nomenclature for the wild type allele of  a human disease
gene always  just "+"? Or would it be, for example HD(superscript)+,
for the Huntington's disease gene wild type allele?
http://www.gene.ucl.ac.uk/nomenclature/guidelines.html has some rules
on naming symbols, but I cant seem to find this point addressed.
