"Aliases" or "Synonyms" should represent the same gene but with different names. But when I try to find the sequence of one alias and try to match with another alias they are significantly different.
During bioinformatics analysis, I need to convert NAT5 alias ID to its gene symbol ID (NAA20, NAA50). When I tried to match the sequences of NAA20 and NAA50, they are very different but still NAT5 is an alias of both NAA20 and NAA50.
I have to convert one id to another id (ENSEMBL). These gene symbol and alias is so confusing.
I am looking for NAT5 and when I search for NAT5 in ENSEMBL, it shows both NAA20 and NAA50.
From UniProt the canonical sequence of both the proteins:
I am confused which one to chose?
