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 (TATA-Box Binding Protein Associated Factor 7 Like) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TAF7L include Mohr-Tranebjaerg Syndrome. Among its related pathways are RNA Polymerase II Transcription Initiation And Promoter Clearance and Assembly of RNA Polymerase-II Initiation Complex. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor binding and transcription regulatory region DNA binding. 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).
