    A conference paper on codon pair bias in prokaryotic and eukaryotic genomes is presented. It also describes the use of cluster analysis to identify ribosomal P site and A site codons with similar pairing preferences. It also proposes that in some genomes, optimal tRNA juxtaposition within the...

    Background: Synonymous codons are used differentially in organisms from the three domains of life, a phenomenon referred to as codon usage bias. In addition, codon pair bias, particularly in the 3' codon context, has also been described in several organisms and is associated with the accuracy...

    Twenty-one complete eukaryotic genomes are compared for codon signature biases. The codon signature refers to the dinucleotide relative abundance values at codon sites {1, 2}, {2, 3}, and {3, 4} (4 = 1 of the next codon site). The genomes under study include human, mouse, chicken, three...

    Background: Codon bias is believed to play an important role in the control of gene expression. In Escherichia coli, some rare codons, which can limit the expression level of exogenous protein, have been defined by gene engineering operations. Previous studies have confirmed the existence of...

    The article investigates the 2-adic plane division of codons into the domains of weak and strong genetic code degeneration. The existence of linear condition is proved describing between the domains of weak and strong degeneration of codon plane's genetic code. Suppose that the second nucleotide...

S. // PLoS ONE;2011, Vol. 6 Issue 10, p1 

    Background: Codon pair usage (codon context) is a species specific gene primary structure feature whose evolutionary and functional roles are poorly understood. The data available show that codon-context has direct impact on both translation accuracy and efficiency, but one does not yet...

    Synonymous codon usage bias is determined by a combination of mutational biases, selection at the level of translation, and genetic drift. In a study of mtDNA in insects, we analyzed patterns of codon usage across a phylogeny of 88 insect species spanning 12 orders. We employed a...

    Background: In yeast coding sequences, once a particular codon has been used, subsequent occurrence of the same amino acid tends to use codons sharing the same tRNA. Such a phenomenon of co-tRNA codons pairing bias (CTCPB) is also found in some other eukaryotes but it is not known whether it...
