conserved sequence

a NUCLEOTIDE SEQUENCE in a DNA or RNA molecule or an AMINO ACID SEQUENCE in a PROTEIN that has remained largely unchanged during evolution; the sequence being very similar between many species. Examples include sequences in PROMOTERS, RIBOSOMAL RNA, and in proteins involved in DNA REPLICATION. See also CONSENSUS SEQUENCE.
