    text
  • constitutively nuclear but its nucleolar localization is inhibited by MTOR, indicating that MTOR regulates nucleoplasm-to-nucleolus transport of MAF1
  • basic FUNCTION
  • putative repressor of RNA polymerase (pol) III transcription, involved in the regulation of transcription, DNA-dependent
  • involved in coupling carbon metabolism to RNA polymerase III transcription
  • MED20 and MAF1 function in parallel pathways to negatively regulate ribosomal protein mRNA and tRNA synthesis
  • repressor that binds and inhibits pol III, and is phosphorylated in a MTOR-dependent manner both
  • major regulator of pol III and POLR1D transcription in human cells)
  • rapidly represses Pol III transcription
  • specifically represses transcription initiation from Pol III promoters and also prevents reinitiation by binding Pol III during transcription elongation
  • CELLULAR PROCESS nucleotide, transcription, regulation
