Gene: TAF2 (TATA-box binding protein associated factor 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: TAF2
Name: TATA-box binding protein associated factor 2
Description: Exhibits TFIID-class transcription factor complex binding activity and transcription regulatory region DNA binding activity. Involved in G2/M transition of mitotic cell cycle; positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; and transcription initiation from RNA polymerase II promoter. Localizes to the transcription factor TFIID complex and transcription factor TFTC complex. Implicated in autosomal recessive non-syndromic intellectual disability.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
