    ..Presumably, this divergence is being driven by strong selection at the molecular level for either acquisition of new functions or partition and refinement of ancestral functions in one or both of the respective gene products. ..

    ..Northern (RNA) hybridization analysis of H. halobium RNA revealed the existence of three transcripts, one of which covered all three ORFs, indicating that photolyase and superoxide dismutase are partly cotranscribed in this bacterium. ..

    ..The derived amino acid sequence of the structural gene showed a similarity to other manganese and iron-containing SODs in normally conserved regions. ..

    ..strain GRB are only about 87% identical. In the alignment of all seven sequences, there are nine codon positions where both the TCN and AGY serine codons are utilized; some or all of these may well be examples of convergent evolution...
