|Function||Component of the Mediator complex, a coactivator involved in the regulated transcription of nearly all RNA polymerase II-dependent genes. Mediator functions as a bridge to convey information from gene-specific regulatory proteins to the basal RNA polymerase II transcription machinery. Mediator is recruited to promoters by direct interactions with regulatory proteins and serves as a scaffold for the assembly of a functional preinitiation complex with RNA polymerase II and the general transcription factors. May play a role as a target recruitment subunit in E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase complexes and thus in ubiquitination and subsequent proteasomal degradation of target proteins.|

This gene encodes a protein that is one of more than 20subunits of the mediator complex, first identified in S.cerevisiae, that is required for activation of transcription. Theproduct of this gene also interacts with elongins B and C, and CUL2and RBX1, to reconstitute a ubiquitin ligase. Two alternativetranscripts encoding different isoforms have been described.
