Gene: TAF12 (TATA-box binding protein associated factor 12) Homo sapiens
Symbol: TAF12
Name: TATA-box binding protein associated factor 12
Description: Exhibits DNA binding activity; transcription coactivator activity; and transcription factor binding activity. Contributes to DNA-binding transcription factor activity and histone acetyltransferase activity. Involved in histone H3 acetylation; positive regulation of DNA-binding transcription factor activity; and transcription initiation from RNA polymerase II promoter. Localizes to the nucleoplasm.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: TAF12 RNA polymerase II, TATA box binding protein (TBP)-associated factor, 20kDa; TAF2J; TAFII-20/TAFII-15; TAFII20; TAFII20/TAFII15; TATA box binding protein (TBP)-associated factor, RNA polymerase II, J, 20kD; TATA box binding protein associated factor 12; transcription initiation factor TFIID 20/15 kDa subunits; transcription initiation factor TFIID subunit 12
