Abstract

In this paper, 125 different mycobacterial promoters are analyzed for their DNA curvature distribution using several di- and tri-nucleotide dependent models of DNA curvature. Different models give similar behavior and therefore qualitative validation of the results. Mycobacterial promoters resembling the E. coli s type have almost 81% (85%) 70sequences having medium and high curvature profiles using dinucleotide-dependent models. Non-E. coli s type mycobacterial promoters have comparatively higher percent of low curvature profiles. Very few extended y10 promoters have low curvature profiles. Mycobacterial promoters having A T (nqmG3) tract in the upstream region of -35 box and repeated in phase with each other have high curvature profiles. M. smegmatis promoters have high curvature profiles compared to M. tuberculosis promoters
