    Brief Description : PlantCARE is a database of plant cis-acting regulatory elements, enhancers and repressors. Regulatory elements are represented by positional matrices, consensus sequences and individual sites on particular promoter sequences. Links to the EMBL, TRANSFAC (Wingender, E. et al.) and MEDLINE databases are provided where available. Data about the transcription sites are mainly extracted from the literature, added with an increasing number of in silico predicted data. Apart from a general description for specific transcription factor (TF) sites, levels of confidence for the experimental evidence, functional information and the position on the promoter are also given. New features have been implemented to search for plant cis-acting regulatory elements in a query sequence. Furthermore, links are now provided to a new clustering (De Smet, F. et al.) and motif search method to investigate clusters of co-expressed genes (Thijs, G. et al.). New regulatory elements can be sent automatically and added to the database after curation. At present, we have collected in total 668 cis-acting regulatory elements that can be queried on TF-site name, motif, function, species, cell type, gene, transcription factor, and literature references. These queries result in a listing of entries with links to other information within the database or beyond through accession numbers from other databases. The PlantCARE relational database is available via the WWW at the URL: http://intra.psb.ugent.be:8080/PlantCARE/index.html
