It is easy to grasp then how a mutation within a promoter, changing a TF binding site, can lead to problems not through a change in the function of the mature gene product, but through variation in expression level of the product.
The binding site prediction is also very important for target drug design.
Positions of the amino acids present in binding site of the protein and tertiary structure representation of the binding site were determined by FTsite server from Boston University, which is freely available online at http://ftsite.bu.edu/.
Conventional stepwise complex formation algorithm best fits the data matrix which included one strong binding site and one weak binding site (lg [K.sub.1-2] = [7.07 5.79]), lof([A.sub.3e]) [approximately equal to] 0.25%.
A binding site is defined as a collection of the interacting atoms that bind to the same nucleotide molecule.
It contains tryptophan and tyrosine in the binding site. The Y469 formed CH/pi stacking with Glc2 and W460 formed stacking with Glc4.
Bound DNA was purified and amplified by PCR with primers (forward 5'-TCCTGCCAAGTGTGTCAAAT-3' and reverse 5'GTGAACGCAGAAATACCAGAA-3') which amplified the region of the FGF21 promoter containing target Sp1-B binding site. The PCR products then were separated on 2% agarose gels.
