Abstract

Nucleotide sequence of the open reading frame (ORF) for the phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase gene (ppc) of the cyanobacterium Anacystis nidulans was determined. The ORF consists of 3159 bp and codes for 1053 amino acid (aa) residues. The codon usage of the ppc of A. nidulans is not so markedly different from that of the Escherichia colippc, yet, in A. nidulans the preferred codons are AAG for lysine and CCC for proline, whereas those are seldom used in the E. coli ppc.
