Definitions for "Sense strand"
The nontranscribed strand of a gene, the DNA sequence of which is identical to the RNA transcript.
The strand of DNA that has the same nucleotide sequence as the mRNA (except the DNA has T where the RNA has U residues). Check out the supplemental resources for a diagram. Note that "sense strand" is sometimes used in different ways in the scientific literature, so it is critical to explicitly indicate what you mean when using this term.
the strand of DNA where the promoter site is located, and mRNA receives its messages from the promoter site.
