Friends,
Last week I posted a question with regard to how short a 5' untranslated
leader may be.  As David Jansma posted, the TRM1 gene has no leader at all. 
Other responses directly to me are summarized below:

bacteriophage lambda repressor- no leader
chloroplastic mRNA's- very short leaders

S. cerevisiae genes
PET54- one nucleotide
TRM1- 2 nucleotides (for the larger form of the protein)

Thanks to all who responded.
