The TATA box is an important conserved sequence within a gene. What is its primary function?

The TATA box acts as a highly conserved eukaryotic promoter located upstream of the transcriptional start site.

The TATA box acts as a highly conserved promoter sequence found in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes. It is located at position −80 upstream of the transcriptional start site.

The TATA box acts as a highly conserved prokaryotic initiator sequence located upstream of the transcriptional start site. This is where the rho protein binds to initiate transcription.

The TATA box acts as a highly conserved eukaryotic terminator sequence located at the −25 position downstream of the stop codon.
