Stop Codons         


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.


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).
