Nucleotide sequence in many eukaryotic promoters usually about 75bp upstream of the start of transcription. Binds NF-1.
In molecular biology, a CCAAT box (also sometimes abbreviated a CAAT box or CAT box) is a distinct pattern of nucleotides with GGCCAATCT consensus sequence that occur upstream by 75-80 bases to the initial transcription site. The CAAT box signals the binding site for the RNA transcription factor, and is typically accompanied by a conserved consens...Found on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CAAT_box

Type: Term Definitions: 1. a sequence of nucleotides found in a conserved region of DNA located 'upstream' (5′ direction) of the start points of eukaryotic transcription units; specific transcription factors appear to associate with it; found in many promoters at −75 bp with the consensus sequence GG(T/C)CAATCT. It is believed to determ...Found on http://www.medilexicon.com/medicaldictionary.php?t=11613
