Does Ensembl have promoters or regulatory regions?

Canonical promoters are not available in Ensembl. However, you can find promoter associated Regulatory Features for human, which have been generated by the Ensembl Regulatory Build. These are displayed in the browser via the Regulatory Features track or can be accessed from the functional genomics database. Other regulatory data are also available, such as CTCF binding sites and motifs from the cisRED database.
These can be found in the Region in detail and Gene Regulation views, the help for these views gives more information.
