Yeast gene name changes

SGD has received a request that a new nomenclature be adopted for the S. 
cerevisiae genes encoding the proteasome regulatory particle.  With the
proposed nomenclature system, the acronym for non-ATPase regulatory
particle genes would be RPN (for Regulatory Particle Non-ATPase), while
the acronym for ATPase subunits in the regulatory particle would be RPT
(for Regulatory Particle Triple-A). 

Below is a list of the proposed names, the current names (when one or more
exists) and the corresponding ORF.  If you have any comments about or
objections to SGD adopting this nomenclature, please contact us via e-mail
