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 :-D

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.
