I think only ΔG‡

The rate of a generic bimolecular reaction can be expressed as
rate=k*e^(-(ΔG‡)/(RT)#

ΔG‡ is the activation energy and its value effects both the forward and reverse reactions.

The other three notations are different variations of Gibbs Free energy. $\Delta G$ generally looks at the spontaneity of a reaction in the direction it is written (or reverse) not bi-directional.

the naught usually refers to at 1 atmosphere of pressure
and the naught prime at 1 atm and standard temp.
