Transcription unit       
Name: rnd
Gene(s): rnd   Genome Browser M3D Gene expression COLOMBOS
Note(s): The rnd upstream region shows some unusual features, which include a stable hairpin structure between the transcription and translation start sites. This structure could be a ρ-independent transcription terminator, and its location only 18 nucleotides after the transcription start site of rnd mRNA is particularly puzzling Zhang JR,1989 In addition, the rnd upstream region utilizes an infrequently used UUG initiator codon Zhang JR,1989 Based on the primer extension analysis, the hairpin structure does not represent an rnd terminator or an RNA processing site Zhang JR,1989
