The 5′-upstream region of a winged bean chymotrypsin inhibitor gene (WCI-3b) was found to have a high affinity for nuclear matrix. The region, named WCI-3b MAR (matrix attachment region), is highly A+T-rich and contains multiple sites interacting with nuclear matrix. A MAR was also found in the corresponding region of the WCI-x gene, another active gene of the WCI family. Several MAR-binding proteins were detected in the wheat nuclear matrix.

Keywords: MAR; MAR-binding proteins; WCI-3b promoter; Wheat nuclear matrix; Winged bean
