codon in yeast. In 1989, however, Kawaguchi et al. reported that the codon CUG is translated as serine instead of leucine in the ascomycetous yeast Candida cylindracea. Subsequently, several authors reported that other Candida species, including C. albicans and C. parapsilosis, also utilize the codon CUG as a serine codon (Ohama et al., 1993; Santos and Tuite, 1995; Sugiyama et al., 1995; Ueda et al., 1994). The “Codon Capture Theory” has been proposed as the mechanism for the change in the… CONTINUE READING
