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
Cell wall regeneration in Chlamydomas: Accumulation of mRNA's encoding
cell wall hydroxyproline rich glycoproteins.
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
but they use the genetic code TAG=Y, I hadn't heard of this particular
Is it universal for all C.reinhardtii genes.
Please respond to
