The definition of a phase shift of triplet periodicity (TP) is introduced. The mathematical algorithm for detection of TP phase shift of nucleotide sequences has been developed. Gene sequences from Kegg-46 data bank were analyzed with a purpose of searching genes with a phase shift of TP. The presence of a phase shift of triplet periodicity has been shown for 318329 genes (~10% from the number of genes in Kegg-46). We suppose that shifts of the TP phase may indicate the shifts of reading frame (RF) in genes. A relationship between the phase shifts of TP and the frame shifts in genes is discussed.
