No

Description: A region immediately adjacent to a promoter which may or may not contain transcription factor binding sites.

Synonyms: promoter flanking region, promoter flank
Parents: flanking_region

Note: I was unsure about how to model the potential relationships here. A promoter flanking region may or may not have TF_binding_sites, but not be part of the adjacent promoter.

    I don't think flanking region is a great term.
    A better parent would be transcriptional_cis_regulatory_region, so that it can be a sibling of promoter. If this does not work, email me.
