TAF8 Antibody (Center)

Peptide Affinity Purified Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody (Pab)

  • WB - TAF8 Antibody (Center) AP13397c
    Western blot analysis of lysates from Hela, U-251 MG cell line (from left to right), using TAF8 Antibody (Center)(Cat. #AP13397c). AP13397c was diluted at 1:1000 at each lane. A goat anti-rabbit IgG H&L(HRP) at 1:5000 dilution was used as the secondary antibody. Lysates at 35ug per lane.
  • IHC-P - TAF8 Antibody (Center) AP13397c

Protein Information
Name TAF8
Synonyms TAFII43, TBN
Function Transcription factor TFIID is one of the general factors required for accurate and regulated initiation by RNA polymerase II. Mediates both basal and activator-dependent transcription. Plays a role in the differentiation of preadipocyte fibroblasts to adipocytes, however, does not seem to play a role in differentiation of myoblasts. Required for the integration of TAF10 in the TAF complex. May be important for survival of cells of the inner cell mass which constitute the pluripotent cell population of the early embryo (By similarity).
Cellular Location Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Note=Localized in the cytoplasm and transported from the cytoplasm to the nucleus in some cells, possibly depending on the functional or developmental state of the cell.

This gene encodes one of several TATA-binding protein (TBP)-associated factors (TAFs), which are integral subunits of the general transcription factor complex TFIID. TFIID recognizes the core promoter of many genes and nucleates the assembly of a transcription preinitiation complex containing RNA polymerase II and other initiation factors. The protein encoded by this gene contains an H4-like histone fold domain, and interacts with several subunits of TFIID including TBP and the histone-fold protein TAF10. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described, but their biological validity has not been determined. [provided by RefSeq].
