Previous GeneCards Identifiers for TAF1L Gene
This locus is intronless, and apparently arose in the primate lineage from retrotransposition of the transcript from the multi-exon TAF1 locus on the X chromosome. The gene is expressed in male germ cells, and the product has been shown to function interchangeably with the TAF1 product. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2015]
GeneCards Summary for TAF1L Gene
TAF1L (TATA-Box Binding Protein Associated Factor 1 Like) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Assembly of RNA Polymerase-II Initiation Complex and RNA Polymerase II Transcription Initiation And Promoter Clearance. GO annotations related to this gene include protein serine/threonine kinase activity and TBP-class protein binding. An important paralog of this gene is TAF1.
