TAF15 RNA and ssDNA-binding protein that may play specific roles during transcription initiation at distinct promoters. Can enter the preinitiation complex together with the RNA polymerase II (Pol II). Belongs to the RRM TET family. Ubiquitous. Observed in all fetal and adult tissues. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
