We demonstrate that serine instead of leucine is specified by the CUG codon in the yeast Candida maltosa. Evidence for this deviation from the universal genetic code was obtained by means of in vitro translation experiments. Depending on the cell-free system used, either serine, in the C. maltosa system, or leucine, in the control with the conventional… CONTINUE READING
