Dear All,
      I haven't seen a solution to this problem posted, so I did a blast search on it.  It is almost certainly a "cytochrome b" sequence primer, and the position in question is usually filled by either G or T.

      Therefore, the proper ambiguity coding is K.  Since K and L are adjacent to one another on the keyboard, I am pretty sure it was just a typographical error.
          ----- Cheers,
                     Ken
