ANT gene models in mammals. Matrix families (i.e. V$MEF2), matrices (i.e. V$NRF2.01) and IUPAC strings from the four human ANTs gene promoters. For matrix families, an example of IUPAC string is shown. For matrices, only nucleotides (IUPAC) with high information content are presented (the matrix exhibits a high conservation at this position). For matrices, nucleotides in bold capital letters denote the core sequence used by MatInspector (defined as the highest, usually four, conserved consecutive positions) [33]. The other nucleotides are from the flanking sequence. Motifs with an asterisk were identified from phylogenetic analyses. IUPAC nucleotide code: R (A or G); Y (C or T); S (G or C); W (A or T); K (G or T); M (A or C); B (C or G or T); D (A or G or T); H (A or C or T); V (A or C or G); N (any base).
