5'UTR Variants of Ribosomal Protein S19 Transcript Determine Translational Efficiency: Implications for Diamond-Blackfan Anemia and Tissue Variability.

The RPS19 gene uses a broad range of TSS and a short 5'UTR is associated with increased levels of RPS19. Comparisons between tissues showed a broad variation in the total amount of RPS19 mRNA and in the distribution of TSS used. Furthermore, our results indicate that rare polymorphic 5'UTR variants reduce RPS19 protein levels with implications for Diamond-Blackfan anemia.
