Protein Information
Name TAF1A
Function Component of the transcription factor SL1/TIF-IB complex, which is involved in the assembly of the PIC (pre- initiation complex) during RNA polymerase I-dependent transcription. The rate of PIC formation probably is primarily dependent on the rate of association of SL1/TIF-IB with the rDNA promoter. SL1/TIF-IB is involved in stabilization of nucleolar transcription factor 1/UBTF on rDNA. Formation of SL1/TIF-IB excludes the association of TBP with TFIID subunits.
Cellular Location Nucleus.

Initiation of transcription by RNA polymerase I requiresthe formation of a complex composed of the TATA-binding protein(TBP) and three TBP-associated factors (TAFs) specific for RNApolymerase I. This complex, known as SL1, binds to the corepromoter of ribosomal RNA genes to position the polymerase properlyand acts as a channel for regulatory signals. This gene encodes thesmallest SL1-specific TAF. Two transcripts encoding differentisoforms have been identified.
