Figure 11-27

Organization of the SV40 enhancer. SV40 is a virus that infects primates, and its regulatory sequences interact with the eukaryotic cell’s transcriptional regulatory machinery. Boxed sequences 1 to 5 indicate the sequences that are required for maximum levels of enhancer activity. (From T. Maniatis, S. Goodbourn, and J. A. Fischer, Science 236, 1987, 1237.)
