The promoter region ( approximately 1400 bp) of myosin light chain 2 gene of fast skeletal muscle from the marine fish Sparus aurata was cloned, sequenced and characterized. It contains a consensus sequence for TATA box, six perfect E-boxes known as binding sites to myogenic basic helix-loop-helix transcription factors and four putative MEF2-binding sites… CONTINUE READING
