Direct or indirect protein-DNA interaction

... a mutation in the gene coding for it caused a 10-fold decrease in expression of my gene of interest), or if it's a middle step in a series of regulations eventually leading to the gene of interest? All I have to work with is the regulatory region of the gene of interest. I'm trying to think ...
