The sspI restriction enzyme is so named because it's used to cut the sspI gene from the genome. The gene itself appears to encode for a spore protein in yeast.

Thanks, Gazareth, now we know what it is.

But we still don't know what it stands for when used in that context.

Ha yeah, got a bit carried away

Far as I can tell, it stands for the not-terribly-exciting "Small, acid-soluble spore protein I".

I preferred it when Physiologists named proteins

Trick question, since it's not an acronym at all.

Come to think of it, it could be an acronym if you pronounced it "spee" or "spy" or something like that.
