GeneCards Summary for MED16 Gene
MED16 (Mediator Complex Subunit 16) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are L1CAM interactions and Metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription coactivator activity and transcription cofactor activity.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MED16 Gene
Component of the Mediator complex, a coactivator involved in the regulated transcription of nearly all RNA polymerase II-dependent genes. Mediator functions as a bridge to convey information from gene-specific regulatory proteins to the basal RNA polymerase II transcription machinery. Mediator is recruited to promoters by direct interactions with regulatory proteins and serves as a scaffold for the assembly of a functional preinitiation complex with RNA polymerase II and the general transcription factors.
