Localization and structure of MTGR1 promoter. Nucleotide sequence of the MTGR1 promoter. The promoter of MTGR1 was amplified by PCR as described in Methods. Nucleotide +1 is the translational start site (ATG) and transcription start site at -176 is marked (TSS). The MTGR1 promoter lacks TATA and CCAAT boxes but is GC-rich with multiple SP1 binding sites. Putative consensus binding sites for transcription factors identified with MatInspector http://www.genomatix.de//matinspector.html webcite and with http://jaspar.genereg.net/ webcite are marked.
