Alternative consequence of guanine stretch alterations upstream of PPA1880. The homopolymeric guanine stretch could be part of the N-terminus of PPA1880. The different lengths of the G tract would lead to the formation of truncated proteins in strains KPA and 266 due to the appearance of a premature stop codon in the respective reading frame. Only in strain P6 a full protein would be synthesized.
