The U2 and U5 snRNA genes of Arabidopsis thaliana contain in their promoter regions two elements with conserved sequence and position. To test the significance of this conservation we have made a construction in which the promoter of the U2 RNA gene is replaced by the synthetic 98 bp long sequence containing the two conserved elements: an upstream sequence element, GTCCCACATCG (USE, pos. -78 to -68), and a TATA-like sequence TATAAATA (-33 to -26), positioned approximately three helical turns… CONTINUE READING
