Protein FULL name:

DNA-directed RNA polymerases I, II, and III subunit RPABC2, DNA-directed RNA polymerase II subunit F, DNA-directed RNA polymerases I, II, and III 14.4 kDa polypeptide, RPABC14.4, RPB6 homolog, RPC15.,

Protein SHORT name:

RNA polymerases I, II, and III subunit ABC2 RPB14.4

POLR2F (Homo sapiens) is product of expression of POLR2F gene.

FUNCTION: DNA-dependent RNA polymerase catalyzes the transcription of DNA into RNA using the four ribonucleoside triphosphates as substrates. Common component of RNA polymerases I, II, and III which synthesize ribosomal RNA precursors, mRNA precursors and many functional non-coding RNAs, and small RNAs, such as 5S rRNA and tRNAs, respectively. Pol II is the central component of the basal RNA polymerase II transcription machinery. Pols are composed of mobile elements that move relative to each other. In Pol II, POLR2F/RPB6 is part of the clamp element and togther with parts of RPB1 and RPB2 forms a pocket to which the RPB4-RPB7 subcomplex binds (By similarity).

SUBUNIT: Component of the RNA polymerase I (Pol I), RNA polymerase II (Pol II) and RNA polymerase III (Pol III) complexes consisting of at least 13, 12 and 17 subunits, respectively (By similarity).


SIMILARITY: Belongs to the archaeal rpoK/eukaryotic RPB6 RNA polymerase subunit family.

NCBI GenPept GI number(s): 47117761
Species: Homo sapiens
