TFIIF is a general transcription initiation factor that binds to RNA polymerase II and helps to recruit it to the initiation complex in collaboration with TFIIB. It promotes transcription elongation. Heterodimer of an alpha and a beta subunit. Interacts with GTF2F2, CTDP1, TAF6/TAFII80 and URI1. Up-regulated in response to enterovirus 71 (EV71) infection. Belongs to the TFIIF alpha subunit family. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
Molecular Function: phosphatase activator activity; protein binding; protein domain specific binding; protein phosphatase binding; RNA binding; transcription coactivator activity; transcription factor binding
Biological Process: fibroblast growth factor receptor signaling pathway; mRNA capping; nuclear mRNA splicing, via spliceosome; positive regulation of viral transcription; response to virus; RNA elongation from RNA polymerase II promoter; RNA metabolic process; snRNA transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter; transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter; transcription initiation from RNA polymerase II promoter
