    Summary
    Enables transcription coactivator activity. Involved in several processes, including hippo signaling; positive regulation of cell differentiation; and regulation of signal transduction. Located in cytosol and nuclear body. [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]
    Annotation information
    Note: TAZ (GeneID 6901) and WWTR1 (GeneID 25937) loci share the TAZ symbol/alias in common. TAZ is a widely used alternative name for the transcriptional coactivator with PDZ-binding motif (WWTR1) conflicting with the official symbol for tafazzin (TAZ). [19 Jun 2012]

    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.
