Look for A/T stretches in your sequence.  This is ONE sign of a true 
promoter. A/T rich areas can also be found in introns as well. continue 
with the homology search using published transcription factor consensus 
sites (Nucleic acids research, vol. 20, No.1 3-26; 1992). However, it 
might take transfecting what you have to find out. GOOD LUCK
