Could you pls let me know what the difference between promoter and transcription start sites ( dna transcription) is?

The promoter is a sequence that is recognized by proteins to initiate transcription. So the promoter on a DNA strand is a few basepairs upstream from the transcription start site where the Sigma Factor binds at the very beginning of transcription.
