The putative promoter of CbCOR15 contains cis-acting elements that have been shown to mediate expression of cold-responsive genes of Arabidopsis thaliana.
Our promoter-fusion experiments found that CbCOR15a contain two cis-acting CRT/DRE elements between nucleotides -939 and +97 and CbCOR15b contain one cis-acting CRT/DRE element between nucleotides -1037 and +97 that can drive strong cold regulated gene expression.
By constructing and analyzing 5' and internal deletion mutants of the yeast KAR2 promoter, I succeeded in identifying a cis-acting element responsible for transcriptional induction of the yeast KAR2 gene in response to ER stress as a 22 bp UPR element (UPRE) in 1992.
As this kind of cis-acting element analysis immediately gave me a UPRE mutant with much weaker transcriptional activity than wild-type UPRE, I thought of and indeed conducted multicopy suppressor screening with this UPRE mutant, because I thought that only overexpression of the trans-acting factor would suppress the weak activity of the cis-acting element.

Transposable elements, the promoter regions of housekeeping genes, and cis-acting regulatory elements of imprinted genes are three key epigenetic susceptibility targets containing CpG sites that are normally methylated, unmethylated, and differentially methylated, respectively.
Paramyxovirus genes are separated by cis-acting elements in the genome.

Once in the nucleus, GR binds as a homodimer in a head-to-head manner to its cis-acting DNA recognition element, the GRE (consensus GRE half-site, TGTTCT).
Our approach is to investigate the cis-acting elements in the regulatory apparatus of the VEB genes, and the trans-acting factors that drive their expression, to identify these critical molecular components.
