Note(s): This promoter was identified by microarray and ChIP assays with a mutant
σ54 strain and a σ54-overexpressing strain,
and by σ54-related promoter element identification Zhao K,2010
We assigned a putative transcription start site to this promoter based on the observation that the majority of the σ54-dependent promoters, whose transcription start sites were determined experimentally, present a distance of 11 nucleotides between the transcription start site and the -12 box Barrios H,1999.
