The genomes of the ancestors of mammals and birds underwent a compositional change in which the gene-richest regions increased their GC levels. Here we investigated this compositional transition by analyzing the levels of G and C in third codon positions, as well as the codon frequencies of orthologous genes from human, chicken and Xenopus. The results may be summed up as follows: (i) GC-poor genes, that did not undergo the compositional transition, showed only minor differences in orthologous… CONTINUE READING
