Official Full Name
TAF11 RNA polymerase II, TATA box binding protein (TBP)-associated factor, 28kDa
BackgroundThe basal transcription factor TFIID plays a central role in the regulation of gene expression in Eukaryota and is a large protein complex composed of TATA box-binding protein (TBP) and 14 kinds of TBP-associated factors (TAF). TFIID directly recognizes and binds to different kinds of core promoter elements that localize near the transcription initiation site and forms a scaffold for the other basal transcription factors to assemble. At the same time, it transmits transcriptional activation signal originating from transcription regulating factors to RNA polymerase II. Taf11p is one of the subunits of TFIID and in the case of budding yeast, it is composed of 346 amino acid residues (aa).
