Gene: Taf8 (TATA-box binding protein associated factor 8) Mus musculus
Symbol: Taf8
Name: TATA-box binding protein associated factor 8
Description: Predicted to have protein heterodimerization activity. Involved in inner cell mass cell proliferation. Predicted to localize to the cell; perinuclear region of cytoplasm; and transcription factor TFIID complex. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; early conceptus; heart; and placenta. Orthologous to human TAF8 (TATA-box binding protein associated factor 8); PARTICIPATES IN RNA polymerase II transcription initiation pathway; INTERACTS WITH carbon nanotube; ethanol; paracetamol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: AW260255; TAF8 RNA polymerase II, TATA box binding protein (TBP)-associated factorq; taube nuss; Tbn; TBP-associated factor 8; transcription initiation factor TFIID subunit 8
