Compilation of E.coli mRNA promoter sequences
Sliding of a 43S ribosomal complex from the recognized AUG codon triggered by a delay in eIF2-bound GTP hydrolysis
An updated compilation of 300 E.coli mRNA promoter sequences is presented. For each sequence the most recent relevant paper was checked, to verify the location of the transcriptional start position as identified experimentally. We comment on the reliability of the sequence databanks and analyze the conservation of known promoter features in the current compilation. This database is available by E-mail.
