Regulatory elements in 5-UTRs may influence the translation of downstream cistrons (Barrett et al.
In eukaryotic cells, rRNA cistrons made up of 18S, 5.8S and 28S rRNA genes are transcribed by RNA polymerase I.
This pattern indicates that these chromosomal regions as poor cytotaxonomic markers, differing from other Atlantic fishes in which the identification of ribosomal cistrons has proved to be efficient to distinguish apparently homogeneous karyotypes, as in Lutjanidae [40], Serranidae [41], and Gerreidae [42] or even population units [43, 44].
He posed the question of whether a gene was a "functional unit carrying the information necessary for the synthesis of a macromolecule" or "the unit of recombination." Textbooks of my college era discussed genes in terms of proposed models of cistrons, recons, and mutons; were missing the start codon in charts of the genetic code; and listed "nonsense" for what we know as stop codons (Keeton, 1967).
