On the colinearity of gene structure and protein structure.

Proc. Nat. Acad. Sci. (USA), 51, 266-272, 1964.

Yanofsky and colleagues established that gene sequences and protein sequences are colinear in bacteria. Order of authorship in the original publication: Yanofsky, Carlton, ... Henning. In genetics, coliniarity is a property of the genetic code to preserve the order of codons.

The complete amino acid sequence of the tryptophan synthesase a protein (α Subunit) and its colinear relationship with the genetic map of the gene.

Proc. Nat. Acad. Sci. (USA), 57, 296-298, 1967.

Yanofsky showed that changes in DNA sequence can produce changes in protein sequence at corresponding positions. His work is considered the best evidence in favor of the one gene-one enzyme hypothesis. Order of authorship in the original publication: Yanofsky, Drapeau, Guest, Carlton.
