The translational efficiency of chloramphenicol acetyltransferase (CAT) mRNA containing a 5' noncoding sequence derived from exon 1 of the murine c-myc gene (360CAT) has been examined at different stages of Xenopus egg development. In contrast to its reduced translation in the Xenopus oocyte, 360CAT mRNA is translated as efficiently as CAT mRNA when(More)
The translational efficiency of chloramphenicol acetyltransferase (CAT) mRNA containing 5' untranslated region (UTR) sequences of Xenopus c-myc I mRNA was examined in the Xenopus oocyte and early embryo. In contrast to their reduced translation in the oocyte, CAT mRNAs containing 5' UTR sequences located between the c-myc I P0 and P2 promoters translate as(More)
