Hello 
I am glad to see another serious news group being added to netnews.

As a coincidence i was doing a little background reading on C. reinhardtii
today and I came across a paper by W. Steven Adair and K. E. Apt   
titled
Cell wall regeneration in Chlamydomas: Accumulation of mRNA's encoding
cell wall hydroxyproline rich glycoproteins. 
published in
PNAS 87: 7355-7359 (1990)

In this paper they report two open reading frames which they 
translate into AA and that code for Hydroxyproline rich
glycoprotein,
but they use the genetic code TAG=Y, I hadn't heard of this particular
code before. 

Is it universal for all C.reinhardtii genes.


Please respond to
