TAF1 RNA polymerase II, TATA box binding protein (TBP)-associated factor (TAF1) is a gene that encodes a protein that functions as a transcriptional co-activator. The protein is also involved in the recognition of transcriptional promoters and the modification of general transcription factors (GTFs). Missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, frameshift deletions and insertions, and in-frame deletions are observed in cancers such as endometrial cancer, intestinal cancer, and stomach cancer.
