TTGTTT_V$FOXO4_01 (2149) Genes with promoter regions [-2 kb, 2 kb] around transcription start site containing the motif TTGTTT which matches annotation for MLLT7: myeloid/lymphoid or mixed-lineage leukemia (trithorax homolog, Drosophila); translocated to, 7 43 4.31E-5
  1. 1The FFUF gene expression cluster was examined for enrichment of conserved cis-acting regulatory motifs by using the Molecular Signatures Database (MSigDB) and its associated analysis procedures [14]. The database contained motifs conserved in the human, mouse rat and dog genomes. The conserved transcription factor binding sites and anonymous conserved motifs were restricted to a sequence window corresponding to ± 2 kb of the transcription start site while the conserved miRNA recognition sites were restricted to the 3' untranslated region of the genes in this cluster.
  2. 2P-values are uncorrected for multiple testing and were calculated as described [14]. Only motifs with p-values < 0.05 after Bonferonni correction for multiple testing are shown.
