AAs lysine (Lys), isoleucine (Ile), asparagine (Asn), and tyrosine (Tyr) are used less frequently as the species' coding sequence GC3 content increases. AAs alanine (Ala), glycine (Gly), arginine (Arg), and proline (Pro) are used more frequently as the coding sequence GC3 content increases. AA, amino acid.
