Prokaryotic Promoter Sequences

In a previous message posted here (April 25) Mary Karpen asked for
information regarding databases of prokaryotic promoter regions:

I am not aware of such an online database however a collection of
promoter sequences was compiled in the following papers:

Hawley, D.K., & McClure, W.R. (1983).  Nucl. Acids Res. 11, 2237-
Horwitz,  M.S.Z.,  Dube, D.K., & Loeb, L.A. (1989).  Genome 31(1),

Willian R. McClure (above) is probably your best contact for
updated (and possibly online) compilations of prokaryotic
promoters.  He can be contacted at Dept. Biological Sciences,
Carnegie-Mellon University, 4400 Fifth Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA
15213 USA.
