Polymorphysms in the known consensus (TNCTRAY; N = any nucleotide, R = A or G, Y = C or T) are bold. Numbers represent the distance (bp) of the first nucleotide within putative sites from the initiator or the 5’ intron boundary (parenthesis). In some instances, two putative branch points were identified.
