Strong rhythms with a period of three bases have been seen while correlating the relative positions of purines and pyrimidines and of the four individual bases in the complete DNA sequence of the viruses øX174, G4 and fd. Generally weaker variations of the same type have been found in the DNA virus SV40, the plasmid pBR322, the RNA virus MS2, and elsewhere in procaryotes and eucaryotes (e.g. in a ribosomal protein gene cluster ofE. coli and the sea urchin histone genes). From the interrelation… CONTINUE READING
