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/.

Definition:A regulatory_region composed of the TSS(s) and binding sites for TF_complexes of the core transcription machinery. A region (DNA) to which RNA polymerase binds, to begin transcription.
Comment:This term is mapped to MGED. Do not obsolete without consulting MGED ontology. The region on a DNA molecule involved in RNA polymerase binding to initiate transcription. Moved from is_a: SO:0001055 transcriptional_cis_regulatory_region as per request from GREEKC initiative in August 2020. Merged with RNA_polymerase_promoter (SO:0001203) Aug 2020. Moved up one level from is_a CRM (SO:0000727) to is_a transcriptional_cis_regulatory_region (SO:0001055) as part of the GREEKC work January 2021. Pascale Gaudet from Gene Ontology pointed out that CRM can be located upstream of the promoter and therefore cannot include the promoter.
