IN 1966, I became interested in the amino acid sequences of cytochrome c molecules ([Jukes 1966][1]). I noted that these sequences differed in the cytochromes c of various species to an extent thatExpand

Recent evidence for evolution of the genetic code.
The genetic code, formerly thought to be frozen, is now known to be in a state of evolution. This was first shown in 1979 by Barrell et al. (G. Barrell, A. T. Bankier, and J. Drouin, Nature [London]Expand

Rates of transition and transversion in coding sequences since the human-rodent divergence.
Protein-coding sequences of 337 human genes were compared with those of homologous genes from rodent (mouse or rat). A composite alignment containing 477,189 nucleotide positions was constructed, andExpand

Evolutionary nucleotide replacements in DNA
With the increasing availability of analytical information on mRNA molecules, it is now possible to compare homologous nucleotide sequences from different organisms and to draw conclusions aboutExpand

Evolution of the genetic code as affected by anticodon content.
Abstract A new approach to understanding the evolution of the genetic code has come from information about mitochondrial codes, directional mutation pressure and stop codon capture. The codes forExpand

SummaryNucleotide substitutions in the form of transitions (purine-purine or pyrimidine-pyrimidine interchanges) and transversions (purine-pyrimidine interchanges) occur during evolution and may beExpand
