PKA gene nomenclature

Dear Colleagues,

SGD has recently received a request to change the standard names of
the genes encoding the catalytic and regulatory subunits of protein
kinase A, to reflect the usage that prevails in the literature. The
genes in question, and proposed name revisions, are:

Present Names:
Standard Name	ORF	Alias(es)
SRA3		YJL164C	PKA1, TPK1
PKA3		YPL203W	PKA2, TPK2, YKR1
TPK3		YKL166C	none
SRA1		YIL033C	BCY1

Proposed:
Standard Name	ORF	Alias(es)
TPK1		YJL164C	PKA1, SRA3
TPK2		YPL203W	PKA2, PKA3, YKR1
TPK3		YKL166C	none (no change)
BCY1		YIL033C	SRA1


Note that no gene names will be added or deleted; the only changes
affect which name is designated "standard" in SGD. Please notify the
SGD curators if you have any comments or any reasonable objection to
the new nomenclature.

Midori
