Term Name: cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding Search Ontology:
Synonyms:
  • core promoter proximal region DNA binding
  • core promoter proximal region sequence-specific DNA binding
  • enhancer sequence-specific DNA binding
  • promoter proximal region sequence-specific DNA binding
  • proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding
Definition: Interacting selectively and non-covalently with a specific upstream regulatory DNA sequence (transcription factor recognition sequence or binding site) located in cis relative to the transcription start site (i.e., on the same strand of DNA) of a gene transcribed by some RNA polymerase. The proximal promoter is in cis with and relatively close to the core promoter.
