It is shown that in the pairs of amino acids coded by the codons possesing identical bases in the first and second positions, the amino acids with R in the third position are of higher structural importance (which is reflected by higher values of (P alpha + P beta) sums of Chou-Fasman conformational parameters), and of stronger helix forming potentials (reflected by the differences (P alpha - P beta)), than the amino acids coded with Y. The same structural factors seem to be of importance for… CONTINUE READING
