Authors: E. Murén and L.-G. Josefsson
Address: Department of Plant Biology, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Box 7080, 750 07
Source of sequence: The sequence was determined from an Arabidopsis thalianagenomic clone in a phage
lambda, EMBL3 SP6/T7 vector, by oligonucleotide primed sequencing reactions.
Trivial name: Promoter sequence from a G-protein coupled receptor in Arabidopsis thaliana.
Description: The sequence contains an AT-rich region with multiple predicted matrix association region
motifs. A potential TATA box was identiﬁed. Part of the promoter forms a predicted CpG island, which
is typical for house-keeping genes and in agreement with what is presently known about the expression
pattern of the gene.

for Forestry and Agriculture.
Figure 1. Nucleotide sequence from the promoter region of a G-protein coupled receptor gene in A. thaliana. The initiation ATG of the protein
coding sequence of the gene is underlined and is formed by the last three bases of the submitted sequence. The mRNA start site is indicated
by an underlined and bolded A at position 765. A predicted TATAAA core sequence is likewise underlined (715–720) and a predicted CpG
island is italicized, nucleotides 731–973. A highly AT-rich region which contains numerous predicted matrix association region motifs spans
the sequence from 475 to 772, but is not indicated in the ﬁgure in any particular way.
