Summaries for TAF7 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for TAF7 Gene

  • 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 (TAF7 RNA Polymerase II, TATA Box Binding Protein (TBP)-Associated Factor, 55kDa) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TAF7 include gestational choriocarcinoma. Among its related pathways are GPCR Pathway and Apoptotic Pathways in Synovial Fibroblasts. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity 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)

    Protein attributes for TAF7 Gene

    Size:
    349 amino acids
    Molecular mass:
    40259 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • TFIID is composed of TATA binding protein (TBP) and a number of TBP-associated factors (TAFs). Interacts with TAFII250, TAFII100, TAFII28, TAFII20, and TAFII18, but not with TAFII30 or TBP. Component of some MLL1/MLL complex, at least composed of the core components KMT2A/MLL1, ASH2L, HCFC1/HCF1, WDR5 and RBBP5, as well as the facultative components BAP18, CHD8, E2F6, HSP70, INO80C, KANSL1, LAS1L, MAX, MCRS1, MGA, MYST1/MOF, PELP1, PHF20, PRP31, RING2, RUVB1/TIP49A, RUVB2/TIP49B, SENP3, TAF1, TAF4, TAF6, TAF7, TAF9 and TEX10. Binds to CIITA and TAF1 and inhibits their acetyltransferase activity, thereby repressing activated transcription and behaving as a repressor at these promoters.
    Miscellaneous:
    • Overexpression of TAF7 in HeLa cells inhibits cyclin D1 and cyclin A gene transcription and causes the cells to accumulate in early S phase. In contrast, depletion of TAF7 from TFIID complexes by siRNAs increases histone H3 acetylation at both cyclin promoters and stimulates cyclins CCND1 and CCNA gene transcription
