DPE_motif    (CURRENT_SVN)

SO Accession: SO:0000015 (SOWiki)
Definition: A sequence element characteristic of some RNA polymerase II promoters; Positioned from +28 to +32 with respect to the TSS (+1). Experimental results suggest that the DPE acts in conjunction with the INR_motif to provide a binding site for TFIID in the absence of a TATA box to mediate transcription of TATA-less promoters. Consensus sequence (A|G)G(A|T)(C|T)(G|A|C).
Synonyms: CRWMGCGWKCGCTTS, downstream core promoter element, DPE motif
