The relevant property is what they call "opening". From the biochemistry textbook by Berg: To explain in words, if the glycosidic bonds (which attach the nucleic ...


Kozak consensus sequence (KCS) is present near or overlapping with the start codon. I am not sure what you mean by distance between that and A-site.

A-site keeps ...
