Codon usage pattern and relative synonymous codon usage (RSCU) of mtDNA of Meloidogyne graminicola.Numbers on the Y-axis refer to the total number of codons (A)
Polyomaviruses (PyVs) have a wide range of hosts, from humans to fish, and their effects on hosts vary. The differences in the infection characteristics of PyV with respect to the host are assumed to be influenced by the biochemical function of the LT-Ag protein, which is related to the cytopathic effect and tumorigenesis mechanism via interaction with the host protein. We carried out a comparative analysis of codon usage patterns of large T-antigens (LT-Ags) of PyVs isolated from various host species and their functional domains and sequence motifs. Parity rule 2 (PR2) and neutrality analysis were applied to evaluate the effects of mutation and selection pressure on codon usage bias. To investigate evolutionary relationships among PyVs, we carried out a phylogenetic analysis, and a correspondence analysis of relative synonymous codon usage (RSCU) values was performed. Nucleotide composition analysis using LT-Ag gene sequences showed that the GC and GC3 values of avian PyVs were higher than those of
Codon usage bias refers to differences in the frequency of occurrence of synonymous codons in coding DNA. A codon is a series of three nucleotides (a triplet) that encodes a specific amino acid residue in a polypeptide chain or for the termination of translation (stop codons). There are 64 different codons (61 codons encoding for amino acids plus 3 stop codons) but only 20 different translated amino acids. The overabundance in the number of codons allows many amino acids to be encoded by more than one codon. Because of such redundancy it is said that the genetic code is degenerate. The genetic codes of different organisms are often biased towards using one of the several codons that encode the same amino acid over the others-that is, a greater frequency of one will be found than expected by chance. How such biases arise is a much debated area of molecular evolution. Codon usage tables detailing genomic codon usage bias for most organisms in GenBank and RefSeq can be found in the HIVE-Codon Usage ...
Redundancy of the genetic code implies that there are more codons than amino acids. Consequently, many amino acids are encoded by more than one codon, which are known as synonymous codons. As a result, some substitutions between these codons are silent and do not change the coded amino acid. For example, in the case of the codons known as fourfold degenerated (4FD), the third codon positions can be freely changed to any nucleotide, without consequences for the coded amino acid, and subsequently for protein composition and function. However, synonymous codons are not used uniformly in real protein coding sequences (e.g., Comeron 2004; Grantham et al. 1980; Ikemura 1985; Plotkin and Kudla 2011; Sharp and Li 1986). Such preference of one synonymous codon over others is commonly known as codon usage bias (Sharp and Li 1986). Usage can differ for various genomes and genes within one genome, and even within a single gene.. As far as the evolution of codon bias is concerned, two explanations, which are ...
Codon degeneracy and codon usage by organisms is an interesting and challenging problem. Researchers demonstrated the relation between codon usage and various functions or properties of genes and proteins, such as gene regulation, translation rate, translation efficiency, mRNA stability, splicing, and protein domains. Researchers usually represent segments of proteins responsible for specific functions or structures in a family of proteins as sequence patterns or motifs. We asked the question if organisms use the same codons in pattern segments as compared to the rest of the sequence. We used the likelihood ratio test, Pearsons chi-squared test, and mutual information to compare these two codon usages. We showed that codon usage, in segments of genes that code for a given pattern or motif in a group of proteins, varied from the rest of the gene. The codon usage in these segments was not random. Amino acids with larger number of codons used more specific codon ratios in these segments. We studied the

In 1994, Muse & Gaut (MG) and Goldman & Yang (GY) proposed evolutionary models that recognize the coding structure of the nucleotide sequences under study, by defining a Markovian substitution process with a state space consisting of the 61 sense codons (assuming the universal genetic code). Several variations and extensions to their models have since been proposed, but no general and flexible framework for contrasting the relative performance of alternative approaches has yet been applied. Here, we compute Bayes factors to evaluate the relative merit of several MG- and GY-style of codon substitution models, including recent extensions acknowledging heterogeneous nonsynonymous rates across sites, as well as selective effects inducing uneven amino acid or codon preferences. Our results on three real data sets support a logical model construction following the MG formulation, allowing for a flexible account of global amino acid or codon preferences, while maintaining distinct parameters governing overall
Effective number of codons (abbreviated as ENC or Nc) is a measure to study the state of codon usage biases in genes and genomes. The way that ENC is computed has obvious similarities to the computation of effective population size in population genetics. Although it is easy to compute ENC values, it has been shown that this measure is one of the best measures to show codon usage bias. Since the original suggestion of the ENC, several investigators have tried to improve the method, but it seems that there is much room to improve this measure. Wright F. (1990).

In prokaryotes, several mRNA sequences surrounding the initiation codon have been found to influence the translation process; these include the downstream region and its codon context, the Shine-Dalgarno sequence and the S1 ribosomal protein-binding site. In this thesis, the purpose has been to study the role of the downstream region and Shine-Dalgarno-like sequences on early translation elongation and gene expression in Escherichia coli.. The downstream region (DR) after the initiation codon (around five to seven codons), has an important role in the initiation of translation. We find that most of the codons which give very low gene expression at +2 (considering AUG as +1), reach 5 to 10 fold higher expression when those codons are positioned posteriori to +2, with the exception of the NGG codons. The NGG codons abort the translation process if located within the first five codons of the DR, due to peptidyl-tRNA drop-off. However, when the NGG codons are situated further down from the DR, the ...
In Escherichia coli, the expression of heterologous genes for the production of recombinant proteins can be challenging due to the codon bias of different organisms. The rare codons AGG and AGA are among the rarest in E. coli. In this work, by using the human gene RioK2 as case study, we found that the presence of consecutive AGG-AGA led to a premature stop, which may be caused by an event of -1 frameshift. We found that translational problems caused by consecutive AGG-AGA are sequence dependent, in particular, in sequences that contain multiple rare AGG or AGA codons elsewhere. Translational problems can be alleviated by different strategies, including codon harmonization, codon optimization, or by substituting the consecutive AGG-AGA codons by more frequent arginine codons. Overall, our results furthered our understanding about the relationship between consecutive rare codons and translational problems. Such information will aid the design of DNA sequence for the production of recombinant ...
Selection acting on codon usage can cause patterns of synonymous evolution to deviate considerably from those expected under neutrality. To investigate the quantitative relationship between parameters of mutation, selection, and demography, and patterns of synonymous site divergence, we have developed a novel combination of population genetic models and likelihood methods of phylogenetic sequence analysis. Comparing 50 orthologous gene pairs from Drosophila melanogaster and D. virilis and 27 from D. melanogaster and D. simulans, we show considerable variation between amino acids and genes in the strength of selection acting on codon usage and find evidence for both long-term and short-term changes in the strength of selection between species. Remarkably, D. melanogaster shows no evidence of current selection on codon usage, while its sister species D. simulans experiences only half the selection pressure for codon usage of their common ancestor. We also find evidence for considerable base asymmetries in
There are two main forces that affect usage of synonymous codons: directional mutational pressure and selection. The effectiveness of protein translation is usually considered as the main selectional factor. However, the biased codon usage can be also a by-product of a general selection at the amino acid level interacting with nucleotide replacements. To evaluate the validity and strength of such effect, we superimposed more than 3.5 billion unrestricted mutational processes on the selection of non-synonymous substitutions based on the differences in physicochemical properties of the coded amino acids. Using a modified evolutionary optimization algorithm, we determined the conditions in which the effect on the relative codon usage is maximized. We found that the effect is enhanced by mutational processes generating more adenine and thymine than guanine and cytosine as well as more purines than pyrimidines. Interestingly, this effect is observed only under an unrestricted model of nucleotide ...
There are a number of methods (also called: measures) currently in use that quantify codon usage in genes. These measures are often influenced by other sequence properties, such as length. This can introduce strong methodological bias into measurements; therefore we attempted to develop a method free from such dependencies. One of the common applications of codon usage analyses is to quantitatively predict gene expressivity. We compared the performance of several commonly used measures and a novel method we introduce in this paper - Measure Independent of Length and Composition (MILC). Large, randomly generated sequence sets were used to test for dependence on (i) sequence length, (ii) overall amount of codon bias and (iii) codon bias discrepancy in the sequences. A derivative of the method, named MELP (MILC-based Expression Level Predictor) can be used to quantitatively predict gene expression levels from genomic data. It was compared to other similar predictors by examining their correlation with
In order to study and compare the phosphate transporter gene codon usage and its respond to the traits like salt tolerance, day length, Pollination and temperature in different plants, 100 isoform from 10 plants are extracted from NCBI website and then analyzed with Gene Infinity and Minitab 16 software. The result shows that the highest codon usage similarity (81.95%) was for wheat and oryza (annual, self-polinated and Psychrophilic) from Poaceae family. The result for poaceae family shows that the highest mean abundance was for codons that have U or G at the end. In this study Cucurbita maxima (salt tolerance, annual and cross pollinated) have the lowest codon usage similarity (70.37%) in compare with other plants in this study. The highest difference between families was for Fabaceae (77.64%) but they are divided in one group at the cluster. So the results show that the families that have lowest distance have the highest codon usage similarity in terms of salt tolerance, day length, Pollination and
TY - JOUR. T1 - Protein elemental sparing and codon usage bias are correlated among bacteria. AU - Bragg, Jason G.. AU - Quigg, Antonietta. AU - Raven, John A.. AU - Wagner, Andreas. PY - 2012/5. Y1 - 2012/5. N2 - Highly expressed proteins can exhibit relatively small material costs, in terms of the quantities of carbon (C), nitrogen (N) or sulphur (S) atoms they contain. This elemental sparing probably reflects selection to reduce the quantities of potentially growth-limiting elements in abundant proteins, but the evolutionary mechanisms for adaptive elemental sparing are still poorly understood. Here, we predict that the extent of elemental sparing in highly expressed proteins will vary among organisms, according to the effectiveness of selection in determining the fate of mutations. We test this hypothesis in bacteria by asking whether elemental sparing is correlated with codon usage bias. Bacteria exhibit extraordinary variation in their life histories and demography and consequently in the ...
Synonymous codon usage is based and the bias seems to be different in different organisms. Factors with proposed roles in causing codon bias include degree and timing of gene expression, codon-anticodon interactions, transcription and translation rate and fidelity, codon context, and global and loca …
Natural selection appears to discriminate among synonymous codons to enhance translational efficiency in a wide range of prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Codon bias is strongly related to gene expression levels in these species. In addition, between-gene variation in silent DNA divergence is inversely correlated with codon bias. However, in mammals, between-gene comparisons are complicated by distinctive nucleotide-content bias (isochores) throughout the genome. In this study, we attempted to identify translational selection by analyzing the DNA sequences of alternatively spliced genes in humans and in Drosophila melanogaster. Among codons in an alternatively spliced gene, those in constitutively expressed exons are translated more often than those in alternatively spliced exons. Thus, translational selection should act more strongly to bias codon usage and reduce silent divergence in constitutive than in alternative exons. By controlling for regional forces affecting base-composition evolution, this ...
The relationship of nucleotide context on fifteen evolutionarily distinct bacterial species was investigated for all four and six codon families to identify the role of context dependency on synonymous codon usage. Genome signatures of four nucleotide words were used to identify the distribution, magnitude and nucleotide contextual patterns.
Researchers from IBCh RAS together with their international collаborators discovered an evolutionary link between efficiency of start codons and the probability of AUG codon occurrence in the 5'-end parts of protein-coding sequences. When start codons are inefficient the next AUG codon is more likely to be found in the same reading frame. At the same time in case of highly efficient start codons, the next AUG codon is more likely to be found in alternative frames. They also have shown that weak initiation at the first starts is associated with the synthesis of shortened proteoforms as a result of initiation at the second starts.

In this manuscript, Puigbo et al. describe their CAIcal web server. CAI, the Codon Adaptation Index, is an important concept relating codon usage to gene expression. Although several software tools online already calculate CAI, CAIcal appears to offer a unique combination of functionality that is not easily duplicated using other tools.. However, the tool in its current form would appear to be a relatively minor advance over existing tools, and I would strongly encourage the authors to consider an extensive overhaul of the software and the manuscript before publication. However, I think the present work contains the seeds of a useful contribution to the field and to the literature, and definitely encourage the authors to persevere, perhaps thinking more carefully about the target audience of the software and the paper.. More attention needs to be paid to the specific contribution of this work if it is to be published as an independent piece of software. No feature of this tool really appears to ...
It is tempting to hypothesize that the highly nonrandom, tissue-specific codon usage we have observed serves an adaptive function. Although we cannot impute an adaptive function, we can nevertheless demonstrate that the codon usage of brain-specific genes has been selectively preserved far more than expected by chance during the evolution of human and mouse from their common ancestor. For this analysis, we have identified and aligned mouse orthologs for the 44 brain-specific human genes (see Methods) and for the other study tissues.. We considered only those sites in the alignment of the human and mouse brain genes that exhibited either identical or synonymous codons. There are 31,050 such codons, which we concatenated into a single sequence for each organism. The resulting aligned mouse and human sequences are fairly similar in their codon usage. There are only two amino acids that have a significantly different encoding (P , 0.01) between the orthologous sequences.. The overall similarity of ...

Background: The genetic code is redundant, meaning that most amino acids can be encoded by more than one codon. Highly expressed genes tend to use optimal codons to increase the accuracy and speed of translation. Thus, codon usage biases provide a signature of the relative expression levels of genes, which can, uniquely, be quantified across the domains of life. Results: Here we describe a general statistical framework to exploit this phenomenon and to systematically associate genes with environments and phenotypic traits through changes in codon adaptation. By inferring evolutionary signatures of translation efficiency in 911 bacterial and archaeal genomes while controlling for confounding effects of phylogeny and inter-correlated phenotypes, we linked 187 gene families to 24 diverse phenotypic traits. A series of experiments in Escherichia coli revealed that 13 of 15, 19 of 23, and 3 of 6 gene families with changes in codon adaptation in aerotolerant, thermophilic, or halophilic microbes. ...
Have you struggled with low protein expression levels in your experiments? This webinar will explain the principles of codon optimization and explore case studies showing how it improves protein expression up to 100-fold. Research has revealed dozens of DNA sequence features that influence the efficiency of each step required to achieve soluble target protein expression. We will review the critical publications that inform GenScripts patented algorithm and the data showing how our algorithm compares to our competitors. We will look at peer-reviewed papers that employed codon-optimized synthetic genes for heterologous protein expression in different host systems, including bacteria, yeast, plant, and human cells. Finally, we will see how GenScripts codon optimization can provide clever solutions to molecular biology problems in specialized applications.. ...
It is widely believed that if a high number of genes are found for any tRNA in a rapidly replicating bacteria, then the cytoplasmic levels of that tRNA will be high and an open reading frame containing a higher frequency of the complementary codon will be translated faster. This idea is based on correlations between the number of tRNA genes, tRNA concentration and the frequency of codon usage observed in a limited number of strains as well as from the fact that artificially changing the number of tRNA genes alters translation efficiency and consequently the amount of properly folded protein synthesized. tRNA gene number may greatly vary in a genome due to duplications, deletions and lateral transfer which in turn would alter the levels and functionality of many proteins. Such changes are potentially deleterious for fitness and as a result it is expected that changes in tRNA gene numbers should be accompanied by a modification of the frequency of codon usage. In contrast to this model, when comparing the
Bioconductor version: Release (3.13) The package calculates the indexes for selective stength in codon usage in bacteria species. (1) The package can calculate the strength of selected codon usage bias (sscu, also named as s_index) based on Paul Sharps method. The method take into account of background mutation rate, and focus only on four pairs of codons with universal translational advantages in all bacterial species. Thus the sscu index is comparable among different species. (2) The package can detect the strength of translational accuracy selection by Akashis test. The test tabulating all codons into four categories with the feature as conserved/variable amino acids and optimal/non-optimal codons. (3) Optimal codon lists (selected codons) can be calculated by either op_highly function (by using the highly expressed genes compared with all genes to identify optimal codons), or op_corre_CodonW/op_corre_NCprime function (by correlative method developed by Hershberg & Petrov). Users will have ...

Expression breadth and synonymous substitution patterns are most probably due to gene length effects: The above results are suggestive of selection possibly playing a role in codon usage bias in humans. However, as stated earlier, genes of different length are likely to have different MCB values owing to the nature of the method. Indeed, if we randomize our sequences and measure the mean MCB for 1000 simulants for each of our genes, we find that the MCB, on average, is higher for shorter genes. This is to be expected of any statistic that employs a multinomial distribution and applies equally to the method of Karlin and Mrazek.. Importantly, it so happens that in our data set longer genes have a slightly higher rate of synonymous substitutions and are not expressed in as broad a range of tissues. Therefore, plotting mean MCB for the randomized genes against breadth of expression for the real gene, we still find a weak positive correlation of the order of magnitude reported for the real genes (P ...
Using experimental data has proven to be much more efficient than using general codon frequency tables of the corresponding genome. Besides, codon usage is not the unique parameter that can affect protein expression. Other factors such as mRNA structure and stability also play an important role in this. Thats why our algorithm is more considered as a gene optimization tool rather than a basic codon optimization tool only. The consequence is a clear increase in protein expression levels from 2 to 15 fold.. Our proprietary algorithm takes into consideration the following parameters, among others:. • Codon usage bias (experimental data based ...

Purpose: : PEDF is a non-inhibitory member of the serpin super family. The protein is a broad-acting neurotrophic factor and an effective antiangiogenic agent, making this a key polypeptide in developing treatments for retinal degenerative diseases. The expression of non-optimized PEDF in bacteria results in poor yields of biologically active protein. Since large amounts of PEDF are required for in vitro and in vivo studies, we used codon optimization strategies to improve the expression of PEDF in bacteria. Methods: : In this study, we converted the human PEDF nucleotide sequence to one that is codon optimized (coPEDF) for expression in bacteria using proprietary algorithm machinery. The gene was then synthesized and cloned into pET32a using Kpn I and Hind III sites and the resulting clone was verified by DNA sequencing. 5 ng of the pET32a-coPEDF plasmid was transformed into E. coli BL21(star)DE3 cells. coPEDF was purified using Ni His-binding resin and the protein cleaved from the 5 Trx.tag ...

This thesis addresses different aspects of the question about accuracy of protein synthesis: i) the mechanism of tRNA selection during translation ii) study of ribosomal mutations that affect accuracy and iii) the choice of aminoacyl-tRNA isoacceptors on synonymous codons.. By measuring the codon reading efficiencies of cognate and near-cognate ternary complexes we demonstrate that in optimal physiological conditions accuracy of substrate selection is much higher than previously reported; that during translation the ribosomal A site is not blocked by unspecific binding of the non-cognate tRNAs which would inhibit the speed of protein synthesis. Our results suggest that there is an asymmetry between initial selection and proofreading step concerning the wobble position, and that binding of non-cognate substrate does not induce GTP hydrolysis on the ribosome.. The knowledge obtained from the ribosomal mutant strains can be used to explain the general relation between the structure of the ribosome ...
The 64 codons of the genetic code determine which amino acids are linked into a sequence to produce protein synthesis. Some of the codons specify the same amino acid by using only the first two letters of their codon triplet to do so, thus rendering their 3rd base irrelevant. Crick called this the wobble hypothesis, and a more complete understanding of the reading process could someday lead to a drug that can repair a misreading or to the creation of synthetic ribosomes capable of healthy protein synthesis. A step towards this goal is to apply mathematical logic to the 64 codons so that experimental results can be reproduced and to answer the specific question, how can the nucleotides in the three base positions be interpreted using mathematical code? Here it is shown that a mathematical formula derived from fluid mechanics predicts which codons in the dictionary will encode using their 3rd bases and which ones will not. ...

When there are no strand-specific biases in mutation and selection rates (that is, in the substitution rates) between the two strands of DNA, the average nucleotide composition is theoretically expected to be A = T and G = C within each strand. Deviations from these equalities are therefore evidence for an asymmetry in selection and/or mutation between the two strands. By focusing on weakly selected regions that could be oriented with respect to replication in 43 out of 51 completely sequenced bacterial chromosomes, we have been able to detect asymmetric directional mutation pressures. Most of the 43 chromosomes were found to be relatively enriched in G over C and T over A, and slightly depleted in G+C, in their weakly selected positions (intergenic regions and third codon positions) in the leading strand compared with the lagging strand. Deviations from A = T and G = C were highly correlated between third codon positions and intergenic regions, with a lower degree of deviation in intergenic regions,
Some work on this problem has been done. A fairly recent reference (with abstract) is given below. Authors Thanaraj TA. Argos P. Title Protein secondary structural types are differentially coded on messenger RNA. Source Protein Science. Vol 5(10) (pp 1973-1983), 1996. Abstract Tricodon regions on messenger RNAs corresponding to a set of proteins from Escherichia coli were scrutinized for their translation speed. The fractional frequency values of the individual codons as they occur in mRNAs of highly expressed genes from Escherichia coli were taken as an indicative measure of the translation speed. The tricodons were classified by the sum of the frequency values of the constituent codons. Examination of the conformation of the encoded amino acid residues in the corresponding protein tertiary structures revealed a correlation between codon usage in mRNA and topological features of the encoded proteins. Alpha helices on proteins tend to be preferentially coded by translationally fast mRNA regions ...
All of the proteins around us, with few exceptions, are made up of 20 fundamental building blocks of life - amino acids. Different arrangements and combinations of these basic building blocks give us the diversity of proteins that we see. Messenger RiboNucleic Acids (mRNA) is in essence a photocopy of DNA that codes for a gene. mRNA carry codons, which are groups of three bases that code for a single amino acid. There are 64 possible combinations of codons (4 x 4 x 4 = 64), but these combinations are degenerate, so there can be more than one codon that codes for the same amino acid. ...
Occurs at the ribosomes in the cytoplasm. During translation, amino acids are joined together to make a polypeptide chain (protein) following the sequence of codons (triplets) carried by the mRNA. mRNA attaches to a ribosome.tRNA molecules carry amino acids to ribosome. A tRNA molecule, with an anticodon thats complementary to the first codon on the mRNA, attaches itself to the mRNA by specific base pairing. First codon thats transcribed is called a start codon. A 2nd tRNA molecule attaches to the next codon on mRNA in the same way. The two amino acids attached to the tRNA molecules are joined by a peptide bond. The first tRNA molecule moves away, leaving its amino acid behind. A third tRNA molecule binds to the next codon on the mRNA. Its amino acid binds to the first two and the second tRNA molecule moves away. Process continues, producing a chain of linked amino acids (a polypeptide chain) until theres a stop codon on the mRNA molecule. These tell the ribosome when to stop translation. ...
Among components of the translational machinery, ribonucleoside modifications on tRNAs are emerging as critical regulators of cell physiology and stress response. Here, we demonstrate highly coordinated behavior of the repertoire of tRNA modifications of Plasmodium falciparum throughout the intra-erythrocytic developmental cycle (IDC). We observed both a synchronized increase in 22 of 28 modifications from ring to trophozoite stage, consistent with tRNA maturation during translational up-regulation, and asynchronous changes in six modifications. Quantitative analysis of ~2,100 proteins across the IDC revealed that up- and down-regulated proteins in late but not early stages have a marked codon bias that directly correlates with parallel changes in tRNA modifications and enhanced translational efficiency. We thus propose a model in which tRNA modifications modulate the abundance of stage-specific proteins by enhancing translation efficiency of codon-biased transcripts for critical genes. These ...
Bypass reporter construction, plasmid manipulation, and methods of bacterial cultivation and β‐galactosidase assay were all as described previously (Gallant & Lindsley, 1998; Gallant et al, 2003). The relevant sequence of the coding strand of the bypass reporter is ATG…TTC [TCC or AGC] ATC TAG C TAA TTT → → lacZ coding sequence, where both the take‐off and landing sites are in bold type, and the landing site is underlined; the terminators blocking the outgoing and incoming reading frames are in italic type; and the hungry codon after the take‐off site is in brackets. The corresponding sequence in the 0‐frame lacZ+ control was ATG…TTC TCC GTC TAC CAG TTC → → lacZ coding sequence, and is identical to the bypass reporters everywhere else. The 0‐frame control thus has a serine codon after the TTC take‐off triplet. It differs slightly from the bypass reporters only in the absence of blocking terminators and retention of the starting reading frame into the lacZ coding ...

In comparison to enzymatic reporters, a clear advantage is the ability to monitor gene activity in intact bacteria, a method that stands in contrast to the use of enzymatic reporters, such as β-lactamase or chloramphenicol acetyltransferase, which require lysis of cells and release of the cytosol in order to assess reporter activity. A disadvantage of FPs is that not all bacteria are able to express them at high levels. Here, we were able to show superior expression of two codon-optimized FPs, YFPopt and CFPopt, in the low-genomic-GC-content pathogens B. anthracis and S. aureus.. Initial sequence comparison between the original FPs and codon-optimized ones with regard to codon usage showed high discrepancies compared to intrinsic B. anthracis genes, making them good candidates for codon optimization. By lowering the GC content substantially and adapting the codon usages of ...
A) DNA sequence analysis of a library encoded by six cycles of codon addition, optimized to provide unbiased representation. Six cycles of ProxiMAX randomization were undertaken as described in Supplementary Figure S2 (at http://www.biochemsoctrans.org/bst/041/bst0411189add.htm), using right-handed hairpins (Supplementary Table S3 at http://www.biochemsoctrans.org/bst/041/bst0411189add.htm) as donors and an amplicon of pUC19 as the acceptor, with optimized mixtures of 18 codons adjusted to reflect the sequence bias illustrated in Supplementary Figure S2(B). The resulting library was analysed by DNA sequencing, using a MiSeq DNA sequencer according to the manufacturers instructions. Data represent the analysis of 286684 sequences of the correct length, which represented 79.9% of the entire library. Bars represent the frequency of each codon from each cycle of saturation mutagenesis. The broken line depicts the target representation for each codon. Further analysis of the library can be found in ...
User:Neil R Gottel,Neil R Gottel]] 16:45, 28 February 2013 (EST): Different organisms will differ in the amount of each tRNA that corresponds to each codon. Certain codons are rare in some species, while common in others. So, if youre putting a jellyfish gene into E. coli, then the codon usage is likely not optimized. Then production of that genes product will be slower/lower (because it takes longer to produce a peptide if the ribosome is waiting around for a rare tRNA to come by). However, according to this OWW page on [[Codon usage optimization]], and specifically [http://www.plosone.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pone.0007002 this paper], the most important factor to consider is which tRNAs are charged (that is, get amino acids attached to them) when the cell is starving, and to favor using the corresponding codons when optimizing your gene. I havent actually done this sort of optimization though, so hopefully someone else more experienced can chime in ...
RED20 is a so-called fail-safe genetic code introduced by Calles and colleagues in 2019 [1]. RED20 encodes each of the 20 canonical amino acids with exactly one sense codon and terminates translation with the canonical three stop codons. RED20 therefore leaves 41 of the 64 triplet codons unassociated with any transla
