    (a) Promoter. The promoter flank structural gene in a transcription unit. The promoter is said to be located towards 5'-end (upstream) of the structural gene. It is the DNA sequence that provides binding site for RNA polymerase, and it is the presence of a promoter in a transcription unit that also defines the template and coding strands. (b) tRNA.
