Kozak consensus


Kozak consensus
Consenus for translational start site of an mRNA. Although the trinucleotide ATG (coding for methionine) is generally considered as the start site, statistical analysis of a large number of mRNAs revealed several conserved residues around this sequence. In eukaryotes, RNNMTGG; in prokaryotes, MAYCATG.
