COMMENTS    DNase I footprinting of the cyclin B upstream region revealed eight
            binding regions within 435 bp of the start of transcription; seven
            of these sites are within 215 bp. Found within these regions were
            consensus sequences for two CCAAT boxes, TATA  and E-boxes, and sequences
            with some similarity to E2F and octamer binding motifs. Upstream
            sequences were functionally defined by generating cyclin B-CAT fusion
            genes, containing deletions and base specific mutations, and testing
            for relative levels of expression by gene transfer. Both CCAAT boxes
            were found to be essential for maximal levels of expression. A third
            binding site (PR7) with no recognizable consensus sequence was also
            found to act as a positive element. Experiments show that protein
            binding to the E2F-like sequences may act to reduce expression.
            Sequence comparisons and methylation interference data indicate
            that the likely protein binding the CCAAT sequences is the characterized
            CCAAT-binding protein CP1. The results indicate that cyclin B is subject
            to positive and negative regulation, involving multiple factors that
            bind between -200 and -90 bp from the start of transcription [1].
