Fingerprint identifies the products of T1 ribonuclease digestion.
Fingerprint cuts any subrange of a nucleotide sequence at Gs (as if it were digested with T1 ribonuclease) and arranges the fragments in order of their U (or T) content. Within families of U (or T) content, the fragments are arranged by A content and then by C content. Fingerprint shows how the fragments would be labeled if the original molecule had been labeled with any single alpha-(32)P-triphosphate by creating a table of the labeled nucleotides that would be found from an alkaline hydrolysis of each fragment. The labels, after hydrolysis, remain on the 3' side of the nearest neighbor 5' to every nucleotide of the kind labeled.
To identify the fragments of a fingerprint of zein.seq, do the following:
FINGERPRINT of what sequence ? zein.seq
Begin (* 1 *) ? 14
End (* 614 *) ? 250
Reverse (* No *) ?
Would you like identical fragments summed (* Yes *) ?
What should I call the output file (* zein.fing *) ?
Fingerprint leaves an extra blank line between "families" of U content. Here is some of the output file for the example above:

In the output file, the positions (Pos) indicate the order of T1 ribonuclease fragments in the input sequence. The 5'-terminal fragment is 1 and, in this example, the fragment at the 3' end of the sequence range is 39.
Fingerprint accepts a single nucleotide sequence as input. If Fingerprint rejects your nucleotide sequence, turn to Appendix VI to see how to change or set the type of a sequence.
All parameters for this program may be added to the command line. Use -CHEck to view the summary below and to specify parameters before the program executes. In the summary below, the capitalized letters in the parameter names are the letters that you must type in order to use the parameter. Square brackets ([ and ]) enclose parameter values that are optional.
Minimal Syntax: % fingerprint [-INfile1=]zein.seq -Default
-BEGin=14 -END=250 sets the range of interest
-REVerse uses the reverse strand
[-OUTfile1=]zein.fing specifies the output file name
Local Data Files: None
-NOSUMidentical suppresses summing statistics for identical fragments
You can set the parameters listed below from the command line.
