Gene: TAF8 (TATA-box binding protein associated factor 8) Homo sapiens
Symbol: TAF8
Name: TATA-box binding protein associated factor 8
Description: Predicted to have protein heterodimerization activity. Involved in maintenance of protein location in nucleus; positive regulation of transcription, DNA-templated; and regulation of fat cell differentiation. Localizes to the perinuclear region of cytoplasm and transcription factor TFIID complex.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
