Is the ideal promoter, its never actually found in DNA. It is a sequence of bases found at -35 and -10 downstream of the start site. It was determined experimentally by comparison of known Promoter sequences from numerous species and selecting the most common bases at each position. Therefore, the closer to the consensus sequence the stronger the Promoter will be.[[]]
