Saccharomyces cerevisiae (R64-1-1)

Subunit (61/68 kDa) of TFIID and SAGA complexes; involved in RNA polymerase II transcription initiation and in chromatin modification, similar to histone H2A; overexpression of the human ortholog, TAF12, an oncogene involved in the formation of choroid plexus carcinomas, results in dosage chromosomal instability (dCIN) in a human cell line similar to the dCIN observed in yeast overexpressors [Source:SGD;Acc:S000002552]

Gene Synonyms

TAF61, TAF68, TafII61, TafII68


Chromosome IV: 746,738-748,357 forward strand.
