...) element at the 3′ border of the Drosophila even skipped ( eve ) locus. This element can maintain repression during embryonic as well as adult eye development. Transgenic dissection revealed that silencing activity depends on a binding site for the Polycomb-group protein Pleiohomeotic (Pho) and on pho gene...

... binding sites for the Pleiohomeotic protein (PHO) and two binding sites for the GAGA factor (GAF), encoded by the Trithorax-like gene. PHO and the GAF proteins bind to these sites in vitro. Mutational analysis of PHO and GAF binding sequences indicate that these sites are necessary for silencing in vivo...
