Definition

Promoter Strength is the efficiency of initiation from a promoter. It is determined by (1) the efficiency of initiation of a promoter complex, which can be measured in vitro, and (2) the frequency of formation of the promoter complex in vivo, which depends on the cell states and is difficult to be measured.
