ready IRESite

General Information
The IRESite database presents information about experimentally studied IRES (Internal Ribosome Entry Site) segments. IRES regions are known to attract the eukaryotic ribosomal translation initiation complex and thus promote translation initiation independently of the presence of the commonly utilized 5'-terminal 7mG cap structure.
