TATA box

TATA box
(= Goldber-Hogness box)
A consensus sequence found in the promoter region of most genes transcribed by eukaryotic RNA polymerase II. Found about 25 nucleotides before the site of initiation of transcription and has the consensus sequence: 5\'-TATAAAA-3\'. This sequence seems to be important in determining accurately the position at which transcription is initiated.
