Abstract

The TATA-binding protein (TBP)-associated factors (TAFs) of TFIID play a central role in RNA polymerase II transcriptional regulation. Some TAFs can function as co-activators that mediate the activation signal from enhancer-bound regulators. In addition, interactions between selected TAFs and core elements direct promoter selectivity by RNA polymerase II.
