The association of the DR1/DRAP1 heterodimer with TBP results in a functional repression of both activated and basal transcription of class II genes. This interaction precludes the formation of a transcription-competent complex by inhibiting the association of TFIIA and/or TFIIB with TBP. Can bind to DNA on its own. Component of the ATAC complex, a complex with histone acetyltransferase activity on histones H3 and H4. Heterodimer with DRAP1. DR1 exists in solution as a homotetramer that dissociates during interaction with TBP and then, after complexing with TBP, reassociates at a slow rate, to reconstitute the tetramer. Interacts with NFIL3. Component of the ADA2A-containing complex (ATAC), composed of CSRP2BP, KAT2A, TADA2L, TADA3L, ZZ3, MBIP, WDR5, YEATS2, CCDC101 and DR1. Belongs to the NC2 beta/DR1 family.
