In eukaryotes, how is the initiation complex able to accurately locate the authentic start codon?

0 votes

 

The authentic start codon is embedded in a consensus sequence called the Shine-Dalgarno sequence.

The initiation complex binds at the authentic start codon, so it will begin translating from the point where it binds.

The initiation complex always uses the first ATG it encounters as the start codon.

The authentic start codon is embedded in a consensus sequence called the Kozak sequence.
