MED25 Component of the Mediator complex, a coactivator involved in the regulated transcription of nearly all RNA polymerase II-dependent genes. Mediator functions as a bridge to convey information from gene-specific regulatory proteins to the basal RNA polymerase II transcription machinery. Mediator is recruited to promoters by direct interactions with regulatory proteins and serves as a scaffold for the assembly of a functional preinitiation complex with RNA polymerase II and the general transcription factors. Required for RARA/RXRA-mediated transcription. Belongs to the Mediator complex subunit 25 family. Ubiquitously expressed. Highest levels in brain, heart, kidney, peripheral leukocytes, placenta, skeletal muscle and spleen. 6 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported.
