Alternative initiation in translation is one of the important mechanisms in which multiple proteins are synthesized from a single mRNA. In many cases, translation initiation occurring at a non-AUG codon has been reported by several experimental studies. We have analyzed all mRNA sequences in the RefSeq database and found that coding regions of about 0.1% of the total mRNA sequences begin with a non-AUG codon (nonAUG mRNAs). Major fraction of non-AUG mRNAs is predicted from genomic sequences… CONTINUE READING
