Table 3. Putative site for initiation of translation in myocilin mRNA
The known mammalian myocilin human and rat homologues contain more than one AUG in the 5'-region of the mRNA with a potential of being the site for initiation of translation. The putative start sites for both the human and rat myocilins were determined following Kozak's consensus sequence for initiation of translation for eukaryotic mRNA. The bases marked in red matches the Kozak consensus sequence .
