TFAM (human)

TFAM regulates mitochondrial transcription. Induced in humans by caloric restriction. Required for accurate and efficient promoter recognition by the mitochondrial RNA polymerase. Activates transcription by binding immediately upstream of transcriptional start sites. Is able to unwind and bend DNA. Involved in cisplatin resistance. Interacts with TFB1M and TFB2M. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
