Protein Function

TAF2 has several biochemical functions, for example, RNA polymerase II transcription factor activity, TBP-class protein binding, involved in preinitiation complex assembly, chromatin binding, metallopeptidase activity. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by TAF2 itself. We selected most functions TAF2 had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with TAF2. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
