High impact information on TAF9B

  • This V delta gene is in the opposite transcriptional polarity to C delta and has rearranged to C delta by inversion in a gamma/delta-expressing hybridoma, DN7 [1].
  • TAF9b (formerly TAF9L) is a bona fide TAF that has unique and overlapping roles with TAF9 [2].
  • Although we provide evidence that TAF9 and TAF9L are partly redundant, RNA interference experiments suggest that TAF9L is essential for HeLa cell growth [3].
