Human TATA binding protein associated factor 2 N (TAF15) is a RNA/DNA binding protein involved in many aspects of RNA and DNA metabolism. TAF15 contains an N-terminal transcriptional activation domain and C-terminal region comprising the RNA recognition motif (RRM) and RanBP2 type zinc finger domains with interspersed RGG motifs. In this study we report the complete backbone and side chain resonance assignments of human TAF15-RRM and backbone assignments of TAF15-RRM-RanBP2.
