Transcriptional regulatory elements articles from across Nature Portfolio

Transcriptional regulatory elements are nucleotide sequences of a gene that are involved in regulation of genetic transcription. These include the promoter, plus response elements, activator and enhancer sequences for binding of transcription factors to aid RNA polymerase binding and promote expression, and operator or silencer sequences to which repressor proteins bind to block RNA polymerase attachment and prevent expression.
