Promoters are relatively short sequences (roughly 100 to 1,000 base pairs in length) always found directly upstream (5', with respect to the DNA coding strand) of the gene they control ("drive," in usual parlance).
Genomic tools and techniques company CS Genetics Limited reported on Tuesday the receipt of the first patent under its Coding Strand Sequencing platform.
The remaining 12 loci (the mt: sRNA is duplicated but counted only once) are encoded on the same strand (herein, the coding strand) and span at least one of the 29 DpnII sites present in the two genomes.
In samples with the T833C mutation, the fluorescent cleavage product is from the coding strand. The length from the mutation site to the 5' end of this strand is 40 nucleotides (nt).
