Relationship between the 5'-leader sequence of mRNAs and the translation efficiency in a eukaryotic in vitro system



Relationship between the 5'-leader sequence of mRNAs and the translation efficiency in a eukaryotic in vitro system



Nucleic Acids Symposium Series 1992(27): 159-160



To examine the effect of the 5'-leader region of mRNAs in regulating translation efficiency, chimeric mRNAs which have various sequences of the 5'-leader were synthesized by the SP6 in vitro transcription system, and translated in the wheat germ in vitro translation system. Translation efficiency was affected by the length of the 5'-leader and the number of the codon A-U-G at the translation initiation site.
