The involvement of nucleotides adjacent to the termination codons in tRNA during the suppression of termination has been formulated as the 'context theory' by Bossi and Roth (1980) [Nature (Lond.) 286, 123-127]. The finding that U-U-G functions as an initiator codon has revived the discussion on the participation of the nucleotides flanking the initiator… CONTINUE READING
