Functioni

Component of the Mediator complex, a coactivator involved in the regulated transcription of nearly all RNA polymerase II-dependent genes. Mediator functions as a bridge to convey information from gene-specific regulatory proteins to the basal RNA polymerase II transcription machinery. The Mediator complex, having a compact conformation in its free form, is recruited to promoters by direct interactions with regulatory proteins and serves for the assembly of a functional preinitiation complex with RNA polymerase II and the general transcription factors. The Mediator complex unfolds to an extended conformation and partially surrounds RNA polymerase II, specifically interacting with the unphosphorylated form of the C-terminal domain (CTD) of RNA polymerase II. The Mediator complex dissociates from the RNA polymerase II holoenzyme and stays at the promoter when transcriptional elongation begins. MED8 binds to the consensus sequence 5'-[AC][AG]GAAAT-3' in both the UAS of SUC2 and the DRS2 of HXK2.6 Publications

Interactioni

Subunit structurei

Component of the Mediator complex, which is composed of at least 21 subunits that form three structurally distinct submodules. The Mediator head module contains MED6, MED8, MED11, SRB4/MED17, SRB5/MED18, ROX3/MED19, SRB2/MED20 and SRB6/MED22, the middle module contains MED1, MED4, NUT1/MED5, MED7, CSE2/MED9, NUT2/MED10, SRB7/MED21 and SOH1/MED31, and the tail module contains MED2, PGD1/MED3, RGR1/MED14, GAL11/MED15 and SIN4/MED16. The head and the middle modules interact directly with RNA polymerase II, whereas the elongated tail module interacts with gene-specific regulatory proteins. MED8 interacts directly with SRB5/MED18. Interacts also with Hexokinase B (HXK2). Interacts with TBP1.5 Publications
