Hi everyone. I have got an mRNA sequence and I wish to know where is the:

  1. Ribosome Binding Site
  2. Alternative Start Site
  3. Promoter Sequence.

You might try asking ChatGPT this question. Without species, context, or more information, it's very hard for us to help you.

Tough to help you without knowing whether we are talking prokaryotes or eukaryotes here. Here is a guideline to RBS in both:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ribosome-binding_site

The idea is to first find a start codon, and RBS is usually not too far upstream. The same is true for alternative start sites, if there are any.

Promoters are not transcribed - they provide signals that drive transcription. There will be no promoters in mRNA sequences.

The title is is completely non-informative. Maybe something like How to find ribosome binding sites? would be more appropriate?
