Potential promotor region for some defensin genes. (A) For two genes OTTMUSG00000019784 and Defcr26 a weak TATA box motif could be identified. (B) A strong TATA box motif was found for 27 defensin genes, here an example is shown for Defcr3 and OTTMUSG00000019785, a novel defensin gene. TATA box motifs are shown in red/blue and start codons in green.
