A Regulatory RNA Motifs and Elements Finder
  Release 1.0, Jan 2006

Accession R0018
Feature Type RegRNA in 5'-UTR
Name Ribosomal S12 mitochondrial protein 5'UTR translation control element (RPMS12_TCE)
Regulatory Motif

        ss(seq="^CCGCGACCTCACCTTTAGGTCCTGTG$", mismatch=3)

Description Expression of RPMS12 gene, coding for a mitochondrial ribosomal S12 protein is controlled at level of transcription, splicing and translation in response to as yet unidentified signals mediating growth, tissue specificity and metabolic requirements.For this mRNA three splice variants of 5'UTR have been detected with only the shortest one found to be regulated by growth status. A 26 nt tract was found to be essential for post-transcriptional down-regulation, in growth-inhibited cells.
