The description of the protein encoded in this ORF: coat protein
The translational frameshift (ribosome slippage) involved: 0
The ribosome read-through involved: no
The alternative forms of this protein occur by the alternative initiation of translation: not tested
The ORF absolute position (the base range includes START and STOP codons or their equivalents): 5712-6191
The 5'-UTR omega leader sequence of this genomic sequence GI:62124 (Goelet et al., 1982) matches exactly the
sequence published to be from TMV U1 (M24955). However, IRESite curators are not certain whether this is the
Ivanov et al. (1997) who used a 148bp region upstream of TMV U1 CP gene as a negative control for experiments
defining IREScp148 of crTMV.
The IRES name: TMV_UI_IRESmp228 Warning: please make ires_name same as the gene_name and optionally append to it coordinates. E.g. when gene/virus name is EMCV-R use EMCV-R_-222_to_-1 or EMCV-R_1-456, etc. but not Emcv-R-... or EMCV-222_to_-1. Please keep case of letters as well. This rewards when searching through the database.
The IRES absolute position (the range includes START and STOP codons or their equivalents): 4670-4900
How IRES boundaries were determined: experimentally_determined
5'-end of IRES relative to last base of the STOP codon of the upstream ORF: 1251
3'-end of IRES relative to last base of the STOP codon of the upstream ORF: 1481
5'-end of IRES relative to first base of the START codon of the downstream ORF: -233
3'-end of IRES relative to first base of the START codon of the downstream ORF: -3
The sequence of IRES region aligned to its secondary structure (if available):
Skulachev et al. (1999) reported upstream and downstream primers used to clone this region flanked by EcoRI
and NcoI sites.
