The ‘<' and '>‘ symbols used in the features section of a nucleotide record, as in DQ882243 for example, mean partial on the 5′ and 3’ ends, in the case below the start and stop codon are missing: gene <1..>270 /gene=”HLA-DRB1″ /allele=”HLA-DRB1*1449 variant” mRNA <1..>270 In a protein record, ABI31835 which is the GenPept translation for the DQ882243 nucleotide record, the ‘<' and '>‘ symbols mean the protein translation is 5′ partial and 3’ partial.
