Fasta "*" character changed to "ˇ"

Hi there,

After downloading a fasta record following a hit, the stop codon (*) has been changed to another character (ˇ). Could this be changed so that the * character is returned?

Likely an issue with BLAST. Hopefully they will fix it soon. (We had a similar issue sometime back -

Can you send me one such sequence from the db to use as test case? Would be helpful to report to NCBI and make it a part of our test suite to catch regressions.

I ran into another issue while trying to reproduce this. See - Now I’m inclined to think that this could be a bug in SequenceServer rather than BLAST. Thanks for reporting.
