Stop Codons         

Description:

316 E. coli K-12 MG1655 genes have UAG stop codons, including seven essential genes. 30 pseudogenes have UAG stop codons associated with them, but some of these are either in-frame stop codons or N-terminal fragments of frameshifted pseudogenes possibly translated out-of-frame until at the next stop codon is fortuitously encountered.

Details:

In all 321 UAG stop codons have been converted to UAA stop codons in MG1655, affecting 316 genes or pseudogenes. This topic clusters those 321 genes (Lajoie, 2013).
