Codon preference and asymmetry in usage in the DNA sequences encoding the mature enzyme protein of 24 plant peroxidases from 12 different species were examined. Codon usage in highly conserved/non-conserved areas of the sequences was analysed, as well as possible deficiency/excess in CpG dinucleotides in the pairs of codon positions. Sequence relationships displayed by overall codon usage, dinucleotide frequencies within codons, and amino acid sequences were also studied. The main findings were… CONTINUE READING
