The intronless and TATA-less human TAF(II)55 gene contains a functional initiator and a downstream promoter element.

Human TAF(II)55 (hTAF(II)55) is a component of the multisubunit general transcription factor TFIID and has been shown to mediate the functions of many transcriptional activators via direct protein-protein interactions. To uncover the regulatory properties of the general transcription machinery, we have isolated the hTAF(II)55 gene and dissected the… (More)
