promoters in Ecoli DNA - All coding regions have promoters before them? (Aug/31/2005 )


I wonder if all of the for example 4253 coding regions in DNA sequence of Ecoli k12 have a promoter region like TA box before them?



No. In bacteria genes can be translated from multigene transcripts called operons.
