TATA box-associated factors TAF250, TAF150, TAF110, TAF60, TAF40, TAF30α, and TAF30β. In yeast there are promoters that require TATA box binding protein (TBP) and TAFs (i.e., they are TAF-dependent). TAFs may require TIC for efficient function. Alternatively, other promoters are independent of TAFs and require only TBP. TBP, TIC, core promoter, fermentation; Wassarman DA, Sauer F 2001 J Cell Sci 114:2895; Green MR 2000 Trends Biochem Sci 25:59.
