A comparison of proteins from Pyrococcus furiosus and Pyrococcus abyssi: barophily in the physicochemical properties of amino acids and in the genetic code.

Abstract

A comparison is made between orthologous proteins from a nonbarophile (Pyrococcus furiosus) and a barophile (Pyrococcus abyssi) organism. The pattern of asymmetries in the amino acid substitution process identifies the amino acids arginine, serine, glycine, valine and aspartic acid as those having the most barophilic behaviour, and tyrosine and glutamine as… (More)
