A tool to find regulatory motifs in 5'UTR? - (Feb/07/2007 )

I wonder if someone could recommend me a good program, which enable finding putative translational regulatory sequences in UTRs of genes, especially in 5' UTR?



you can try UTRscan

registration is necessary to use the program, but it's free


You could also try RSAT at
I heard MatInspector and MEME are also good programs. Last year there was a paper in some Nature journal where the guy compared many such programs. It will be worth to take a look at that paper.
