Pairwise alignment of the 1,000-bp upstream region of OsOxO4 from Moroberekan and Vandana showing the 26-bp difference between the two sequences in the region from −353 to −378 in the Moroberekan sequence. Below the alignment are the locations of the cis-elements in this region. These are the bacterial-responsive nodulation elements, NODCON2GM and OSE2ROOTNODULE, the binding site for the DOF proteins in maize, DOFCOREZM, and the light-induced promoter element SORLIP1AT. The 26-bp sequence is present in Moroberekan and the blast resistant progenies IR78221-19-6-7-B, IR78221-19-6-56-B and IR78221-19-6-99-B, but is absent from Vandana and the blast susceptible progeny IR78221-19-3-196-B. Minus symbol indicates that the promoter element is on the opposite strand.
