TATA box position

Investigating a rice promoter sequence, I found  an unsually long
distance (88bp) between the TATA box and the putative start
transcriptional site (as resulted from primer extension analysis).Does
anyone know  similar cases? Could this be responsable of the weak
promoter activity this sequence shows both in vivo and in vitro?

Thanks in advance
