  • ​The TATA box (also called Goldberg-Hogness box) is a DNA sequence (cis-regulatory element) found in the promoter region of genes in archaea and eukaryotes; approximately 24% of human genes contain a TATA box within the core promoter.
    The TATA box is a binding site of either general transcription factors or histones.

  • TATA box is basically a recognition sequence in the promoter region . It basically helps in attachment of transcriptional machinery on the DNA sequence.
