Conserved DNA sequence motifs in putative promoter regions. Analysis output from comparing putative promoter regions of the six prophenoloxidase transcripts identified in the case study, searching for conserved DNA sequence motifs that are 12 nucleotides in length with no mismatches allowed. Each conserved DNA sequence (motif) is followed by the number of genes (#genes) within the gene set where this motif was found, the total occurrences of the motif (count), taking into account that some genes may contain multiple instances of a motif, the corresponding frequency (%set) of occurrence of this motif within the current gene set, the frequency of occurrence of the motif within: all cDNAs (%cdna), all genes [including introns] (%gene), and all promoters (%prom), in the An. gambiae genome, and the fold difference between the frequency of occurrence of the motif in this gene set as compared to its frequency in all cDNAs (cdna-fold), all genes (gene-fold), and all promoter regions (prom-fold), in the An. gambiae genome. Each transcription factor binding site that matches or occurs within a conserved motif is indicated (factors), along with the class of organism in which the binding site was described originally. Motifs that do not match or contain a known transcription factor binding site are highlighted in orange. The gene identifiers containing each sequence motif are shown in the last column (genes).
