Enrichment of cis-acting motifs in the promoter of hypervariable genes. Frequency distribution of the number of predicted transcription binding sites in the promoter of housekeeping and hypervariable genes and the whole genome. The genes were ranked according to the number of cis-acting regulatory elements in their promoters according to the AGRIS database (X-axis). The points represent the fraction of genes in a bin of 10 motifs.
