Systematic name YMR159C
Gene name ATG16
Aliases APG15, APG16, CVT11, SAP18
Feature type ORF, Verified
Coordinates Chr XIII:574928..574476

Description of YMR159C: Conserved protein that interacts with Atg12p-Atg5p conjugates to form Atg12p-Atg5p-Atg16p multimers, which localize to the pre-autophagosomal structure and are required for autophagy[1][2][3][4]
