This section provides the following information:

  • Gene Name (Recommended): Official gene name/symbol assigned to the gene. Human gene names/symbols are approved by the HUGO Gene Nomenclature Committee (HGNC), mouse gene names/symbols are approved by the Mouse Genome Informatics (MGI), whereas rat gene names and symbols are approved by Rat Genome Nomenclature Committee (RGNC). Eg. HGF
  • Gene Name (Synonyms): Synonymous names for the given gene name, assigned by UniProtKB and RefSeq. Eg. HPTA; DFNB39; F-TCF; HGFB; HPTA; SF; HGF
  • Protein Name (Recommended): Protein name assigned by UnitProtKB which follows international protein nomenclature guidelines. Eg. Hepatocyte growth factor
  • Protein Name (Synonyms): Synonymous names for the given protein name, assigned by UniProtKB and NCBI RefSeq name with official nomenclature, when available. Eg. Hepatocyte growth factor isoform 6

Source of information

The Names data is collected and integrated from UniProtKB and NCBI RefSeq databases.

  • UniProtKB - alternative names taken from UniProtKB protein accessions
  • NCBI RefSeq - primary and other alternative/synonym protein names taken from the NCBI RefSeq database
