    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION
    basic FUNCTION
  • TATA box binding protein associated factor
  • RNA polymerase activity
  • acts as a positive regulator of adipogenesis and reverses the inhibitory effect of its histone fold
  • with SUP7TL-TAF10 and also the SMAT complex, seem to be important regulators of the composition of different TBP and/or STAGA/TFTC complexes in the nucleus and consequently may play a role in gene regulation (Demeny 2007)
