Term Information

Data health 
Accession
GO:0000978
Name
RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding
Ontology
molecular_function
Synonyms
RNA polymerase II core promoter proximal region sequence-specific DNA binding, RNA polymerase II promoter proximal region sequence-specific DNA binding, RNA polymerase II upstream activating sequence (UAS) sequence-specific DNA binding
Alternate IDs
None
Definition
Interacting selectively and non-covalently with a specific upstream regulatory DNA sequence (transcription factor recognition sequence or binding site) located in the proximal promoter of a gene transcribed by RNA polymerase II. The proximal promoter is in cis with and relatively close to the core promoter. Source: GOC:txnOH, GOC:pg
Comment
Note that the phrase "upstream activating sequence", or UAS is often used in S. cerevisiae literature to refer to regulatory sequences that occur in the region upstream and proximal to the core promoter. In contrast, in bacteria such as E. coli, the phrase "upstream activating sequence", or UAS is a synonym for "enhancer".
