    Hey everyone,
    This is probably a hard phrase to translate; a TATA box is a sequence of Thymine and Adenine nucleotides on a DNA strand; it is near the promoter sites and aids in identifying the promoter site and in starting the replication process. Anyone have any idea how to translate it? It's for an ESL Biology Class... and I'm not sure if it can even be translated.

    Hola:
    "Una caja TATA (también se usa en investigación el término en inglés) es una secuencia de nucleótidos de timina y adenina, en una hebra de DNA; se encuentra cerca del promotor, y ayuda a localizar el sitio del promotor y el punto de inicio de replicación".
