The intronless gene for this transcription coactivator is located between the protocadherin beta and gamma gene clusters on chromosome 5. The protein encoded by this gene is a component of the TFIID protein complex, a complex which binds to the TATA box in class II promoters and recruits RNA polymerase II and other factors. This particular subunit interacts with the largest TFIID subunit, as well as multiple transcription activators. The protein is required for transcription by promoters targeted by RNA polymerase II.

GeneCards Summary for TAF7 Gene
TAF7 (TATA-Box Binding Protein Associated Factor 7) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TAF7 include Gestational Choriocarcinoma. Among its related pathways are Assembly of RNA Polymerase-II Initiation Complex and PEDF Induced Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding and transcription coactivator activity. An important paralog of this gene is TAF7L.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TAF7 Gene
Functions as a component of the DNA-binding general transcription factor complex TFIID, a multimeric protein complex that plays a central role in mediating promoter responses to various activators and repressors. Present in both of the previously described TFIID species which either lack or contain TAFII30 (TFIID alpha and TFIID beta respectively).
