  • a Base immediately 5′ of the polyadenylation site.

  • b Polyadenylation sites were determined as (1) The “U,” “C,” and “G” sites annotated in the GenBank records unless they are followed by an “A,” in which case this “A” was assumed to be the polyadenylation site and (2) the “A” sites annotated in GenBank unless they are preceded by an “A,” in which case the 5′-most “A” was designated as the polyadenylation site.
