We simulate the abundance of long poly(a) tracts and examine the molecular evolution of coding regions containing such tracts through immunostaining of a full-length protein in bacterial cells and insect embryos, we demonstrate that polymerase infidelity rescues the function of endosymbiont genes carrying frameshift.
