SEQUENCE ONTOLOGY - ANNOTATIONS

The Sequence Types and Features Ontology (SO) is downloaded weekly from the SourceForge CVS repository at http://song.cvs.sourceforge.net/viewvc/song/ontology/. For more information about this ontology, see the Sequence Ontology Home Page at http://www.sequenceontology.org/.

Accession:SO:0000165 term browser browse the term
Definition:A cis-acting sequence that increases the utilization of (some) eukaryotic promoters, and can function in either orientation and in any location (upstream or downstream) relative to the promoter.
Comment:An enhancer may participate in an enhanceosome GO:0034206. A protein-DNA complex formed by the association of a distinct set of general and specific transcription factors with a region of enhancer DNA. The cooperative assembly of an enhanceosome confers specificity of transcriptional regulation. This comment is a place holder should we start to make cross products with GO.
