The nearly invariant nature of the 'Universal Genetic Code' attests to its early establishment in evolution and to the difficulty of altering it now, since so many molecules are required for, and depend upon, faithful translation. Nevertheless, variations on the universal code are known in a handful of genomes. We have found one such variant in diplomonads, an early-diverging eukaryotic lineage. Genes for alpha-tubulin, beta-tubulin and elongation factor 1 alpha (EF-1alpha) from two… CONTINUE READING
