  1. Base composition of the intervals of upstream regions of Arabidopsis genes (coding strand) and of the TFBS motifs used in this study. As motifs are frequently reported in both the forward and reverse-complement orientation, the directionality reported as “forward” was chosen. Composition of the reverse-complement sequence version can be imputed from the given percentages based on canonical base-pairings A-T and G-C. In case of ambiguous bases as part of the sequence, correspondingly allowed individual bases A, C, G, or T, were counted fractionally
