This study considers transcription regulation of plastid genes involved in sulfate transport in the parasites of invertebrate (Helicosporidium sp.) and other species of the Viridiplantae. A one-box conserved motif with the consensus TAAWATGATT is found near promoters upstream the cysT and cysA genes in many species. In certain cases, the motif is repeated two or three times.
