Previous Symbols for TAF7L Gene
This gene is similar to a mouse gene that encodes a TATA box binding protein-associated factor, and shows testis-specific expression. The encoded protein could be a spermatogenesis-specific component of the DNA-binding general transcription factor complex TFIID. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2009]
GeneCards Summary for TAF7L Gene
TAF7L (TAF7-Like RNA Polymerase II, TATA Box Binding Protein (TBP)-Associated Factor, 50kDa) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are GPCR Pathway and Apoptotic Pathways in Synovial Fibroblasts. An important paralog of this gene is TAF7.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TAF7L Gene
Probably functions as a spermatogensis-specific 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. May play a role in spermatogenesis (By similarity).
