> Dear Prof ,
>> I´m a professor from Brazil.
> I have seen you have a sofware for promoter analysis.
>> I´m writing a paper about stem cells and I analyzed by real time PCR the difference of level expression among 10 genes in 6 cell types.
> Our analysis suggests that there are relations among some genes.
>> So, I would like to find the promoter region of these 10 genes and investigate if there is common transcription factor among them.
>> Could you help me?
>> Thanks a lot

I guess you are investigating human sequences?
1. try to extract upstream sequences using i.e http://www.biomart.org/
2. for a set of sequences yo may search using GLAM http://zlab.bu.edu/glam/
see alos other tools from http://sullivan.bu.edu/zlab/gene.shtml site
3. if yo want to do de novo motif discovery there are a couple of
programs, such as MEME (http://meme.sdsc.edu/meme/meme.html) and
Hope it helps.
