TAF5, also named as TAF2D and TAFII100, belongs to the WD repeat TAF5 family. TAFs are components of the transcription factor IID (TFIID) complex, PCAF histone acetylase complex and TBP-free TAFII complex (TFTC). TAFs components-TIIFD is essential for mediating regulation of RNA polymerase transcription. TAF5 interacts strongly with the histone H4-related TAF6/TAFII80 and the histone H3-related TAF9/TAFII31, as well as a stable complex comprised of both TAF5/TAFII80 and TAF6/TAFII31. Apparently weaker interactions of TAF5/TAFII100 with TBP, TAF1/TAFII250, TAF11/TAFII28, and TAF12/TAFII20, but not TAF7/TAFII55, also have been observed. This antibody is specific to TAF5.
