DOG-box DNA motifs were enriched in the promoters of dorsal gland expressed genes in Globodera rostochiensis (1). As a modulus to identify putative effectors, we searched for a similar motif in H. glycines. A set of DOG-box containing genes from G. rostochiensis and glutathione synthetase genes from both H. glycines and G. rostochiensis were used to refine a H. glycines DOG box using MEME. The promoters of the genes in H. glycines were queried by newly characterized DOG-box to identify a set of putative effectors.
