The 3' terminal nucleotide sequence of two clones containing DNA complementary to mu chain mRNA of IgM-secreting cells has been determined. The sequence shows a termination codon (UGA) adjacent to the terminal tyrosine codon for the secreted protein and a 3' non-coding region of at least 106 bases. The primary translation product of this mu chain mRNA seems to terminate at the tyrosine of the secreted protein.
