Section (~0.2 kb) of a sequence alignment of the
promoter amplified with primers pairs VrnA1F/Int1R (
; 0.7 kb product) and P2/P5 (
; 0.8 kb product). The location of putative transcriptional signals (in bold) are given according to Yan et al. . The ATG start codon is indicated in gray. The 8 bp insertion (8 bp ins.) is shown and nucleotide substitution leading to an additional Msp 1 restriction site (underlined) is indicated by an arrow. Polymorphic bases in VRN-B1 as compared to VRN-A1 are underlined. The VRN-B1 sequence shown here is highly conserved among five diverse accessions of T. dicoccoides.
