Experimental Process

DNAse footprint and EMSA to validate binding. Kd estimated from EMSA. Site directed mutagenesis to ascertain direct repeat binding site.

Transcription Factor Binding Sites


Quantitative data format: Kd from EMSA; range: 57 - 891


Gene Regulation

Regulated genes for each binding site are displayed below. Gene regulation diagrams show binding sites, positively-regulated genes, negatively-regulated genes, both positively and negatively regulated genes, genes with unspecified type of regulation. For each indvidual site, experimental techniques used to determine the site are also given.
