Table 1 Motifs detected in pro-SmAMP2 gene promoter sequence (based on the results of analysis by PLACE and PlantCARE programs)

From: Novel strong promoter of antimicrobial peptides gene pro-SmAMP2 from chickweed (Stellaria media)

Motif Description
5UTR Py-rich stretch region in the 5primeUTR conferring high transcription levels without the need for other upstream cis-elements except for a TATA-box
GCN4_motif cis-regulatory element involved in endosperm expression
TGACG-motif, CGTCA-motif cis-acting regulatory element involved in the MeJA-responsiveness
GT1-motif light responsive element
ARE (anaerobic responsive element) cis-acting regulatory element essential for the anaerobic induction
MRE MYB binding site involved in light responsiveness
ACE cis-acting element involved in light responsiveness
TC-rich repeats cis-acting element involved in defense and stress responsiveness
Skn-1_motif cis-acting regulatory element required for endosperm expression
MBS MYB binding site involved in drought-inducibility
G-box cis-acting regulatory element involved in light responsiveness
AC-I element involved in negative regulation on phloem expression; and responsible for restricting the vascular expression to the xylem
TCA-element cis-acting element involved in salicylic acid responsiveness
I box part of a light responsive element
TGA-element auxin-responsive element
W-box wounding and pathogen elicitor response
S box wounding and pathogen elicitor response
CAAT-box common cis-acting element in promoter and enhancer regions
TATA-box core promoter element around −30 of transcription start
