Table 3 Frequencies of matches to the ModE-binding consensus in several complete genomes. The number of sites scoring greater than 75 for similarity to the ModE-binding consensus was counted for each of the complete genome sequences. Note that the consensus sequence is a nearly palindromic, so only sites on on one strand were counted. Matches were designated intragenic if the center of the 28 base site was located within a protein-coding region and intergenic otherwise.

From: A DNA element recognised by the molybdenum-responsive transcription factor ModE is conserved in Proteobacteria, green sulphur bacteria and Archaea
