Abstract

195 genes codings for proteins in four different folding types were analyzed in terms of variance analysis, in which there are 50 genes codings for all α proteins, 66 entries for all β proteins, 37 entries for α + β proteins and 42 entries for α/β proteins. It was observed that codon usage in different gene classes codings for different folding proteins is significantly different. Similar to amino acid propensities in different protein classes, folding type - specific proteins have specific codon usage patterns. With the help of codon usage pattern, the prediction of protein folding type and further prediction of protein secondary structure can be improved.
