[…] In silico analysis to identify putative transcription factor binding sites within cis-regulatory regions was performed using the MatInspector (Cartharius et al. ; http://www.genomatix.de/online_help/help_matinspector/matinspector_help.html; http://www.genomatix.de/cgi-bin/matinspector_prof/mat_fam.pl). Predictions were inspected manually, checked in correlation with literature reports, and filtered through phylogenetic conservation using the Drosophila EvoPrinter (http://evoprinter.ninds.nih.gov/evoprintprogramHD/evphd.html) or the UCSC Genome Browser (http://genome.ucsc.edu/cgi-bin/hgGateway).
