Comments P.482 2nd paragraph: "Genes from a given species also have characteristic codon usage patterns which reflects, in part, the overall base composition of the organism (Muto and Osawa, 1987, Wada et al., 1992). For example, the gene encoding N-acetylglutamyl-γ-semialdehyde dehydrogenase (argC) from E. coli has a base composition of 53.5% G + C while the homologous sequence from Bacillus subtilis is only 46.1 % G + C, and 73.1% G + C in Streptomyces clavuligerus."
