GeneCards Summary for MED6 Gene
MED6 (Mediator Complex Subunit 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are RNA Polymerase II Transcription Initiation And Promoter Clearance and Gene Expression. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor binding and RNA polymerase II transcription cofactor activity.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MED6 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.
