Summary
TATA binding protein (TBP) and TBP-associated factors (TAFs) participate in the formation of the TFIID protein complex, which is involved in initiation of transcription of genes by RNA polymerase II. This gene encodes a cell type-specific TAF that may be responsible for mediating transcription by a subset of activators in B cells. Three transcript variants encoding two different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jun 2014]

HIV-1 interactions

Protein interactions

Protein Gene Interaction Pubs
Tat tat Interaction of TFIID with the HIV-1 LTR, and therefore presumably HIV-1 Tat protein, is primarily dependent on the LTR TATA element and may also be stabilized or regulated by flanking E box motifs and basic helix-loop-helix proteins such as AP-4 and E47 PubMed
tat TATA binding protein (TBP)-associated factors (TAFs) in the TFIID complex are required for activation by transcription factors, but are dispensable for HIV-1 Tat LTR transactivation function PubMed
tat A novel function of LBP-1, restricting HIV-1 transcription at the level of elongation by preventing the binding of TFIID to the promoter, is suppressed by HIV-1 Tat, indicating Tat helps recruit TFIID to the HIV-1 LTR PubMed
tat HIV-1 Tat stabilizes the interaction of TFIIA with TFIID, and TFIIA and TFIID are required to reconstitute Tat-specific and TAR-dependent activation of HIV transcription in vitro PubMed
tat HIV-1 Tat binds, through amino acids 36-50, directly to the TBP subunit of the TFIID holoenzyme complex (which includes at least TFIID subunits p250, p125, p70, TBP, and p30), and increases the interaction of TFIID with the HIV-1 LTR promoter PubMed

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.

    Status: REVIEWED

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (3) contains an alternate exon and uses an alternate splice junction at the 5' end of an exon compared to variant 1. This variant is represented as non-coding because the use of the 5'-most expected translational start codon renders the transcript a candidate for nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD).
