For each known regulatory element, we show the best k-mer, its rank within the set of 437 highest scoring k-mers, the median distance to ATG (for occurrences upstream of genes within the conserved set), the optimal window, the orientation bias, the corrected ratio of upstream/coding bias, the total (up-regulated/down-regulated) number of microarray conditions in which the k-mer was found (see Materials and methods), TRANSFAC matches, and the best GO enrichment.
