I am writing in connection with your abstract: A Drosophila model for human congenital disorder of glycosylations IIc. You mention a gene symbol that is new to FlyBase, Gfr. Do you know which of the Genome Project CG annotations your gene corresponds to? Might it be CG9620? All the CGs have corresponding gene records in FlyBase already and we don't like to make duplicate records for what is actually the same gene unless we can't avoid it. The CG symbols become synonyms when an annotation is named with a more descriptive or functional name. With best wishes, Rachel.

Ishikawa' <hoishika@XXXX> Subject: Re: Helping FlyBase: ADRC-50099 Dear Rachel, First, I apologize that we did not note the CG number of Golgi GDP-fucose transporter (gfr) gene in the abstract. As you pointed out, gfr is CG9620. We have confirmed Gfr localized to the Golgi, and had an activityto transport GDP-fucose into the Golgi. So we believe that gfr is a reasonable name for CG9620. Best regards, Hiro.
