Help: plasmid for functional expression

I finally get all of my receptor with RACE PCR, ligate it into Promega's 
T vector (pGEM-5Zf+) and prepare plasmid preps.  I'm about to make cRNA 
for Xenopus oocyte injection, when I realize that the polylinker region 
between the RNA polymerase promoters contains two start codons (ATG) 
upstream of the insert and two more start codons downstream.  Is this 
going to be a problem?  Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
