Pictograms of splice sites and translation start The height of each letter is proportional to its frequency. At Arabidopsis thaliana, Ce Caenorhabditis elegans, Dm Drosophila melanogaster, Os Oryza sativa. (a) splice acceptor site – canonical AG is at positions -2 and -1, (b) splice donor site – canonical GT is at +1 and +2, (c) translation start site – canonical ATG is at +1 to +3, (d) splice acceptor site consensus derived from gene predictions in A. thaliana with C. elegans parameters.
