Table 1 Genome-wide databases of candidate transcription factor binding sites

From: ModuleMiner - improved computational detection of cis-regulatory modules: are there different modes of gene regulation in embryonic development and adult tissues?

Number Database properties Number of genes Number of regions Number of binding sites
1 Human-mouse conserved regions, 10 kilobases 5' of TSS 8,759 22,582 1,858,800
2 (1) + limited to binding sites occurring both in the human and mouse CNS 8,759 22,582 878,338
3 (2) + correct for possible mouse TSS differences (add 100 kilobases of mouse sequence 5' and 3') 11,653 35,021 1,316,927
  1. CNS, conserved noncoding sequence; TSS, transcription start site.
