Short name: TAF_TATA-bd

Domain relationships

  • Histone-fold (IPR009072)
    • TATA box binding protein associated factor (TAF) (IPR004823)

Description

The TATA box binding protein associated factor (TAF) is part of the transcription initiation factor TFIID multimeric protein complex. TFIID plays a central role in mediating promoter responses to various activators and repressors. It binds tightly to TAFII-250 and directly interacts with TAFII-40. TFIID is composed of TATA binding protein (TBP)and a number of TBP-associated factors (TAFS). TAF proteins adopt a histone-like fold.
