Term Detail
GO term:transcriptional activator activity, RNA polymerase II transcription factor binding
Synonym: RNA polymerase II transcription factor binding transcription activator activity
Synonym: RNA polymerase II transcription factor binding transcription factor activity involved in positive regulation of transcription
GO id:GO:0001190
Definition:Interacting selectively and non-covalently with an RNA polymerase II transcription factor, which may be a single protein or a complex, in order to increase the frequency, rate or extent of transcription from an RNA polymerase II promoter. A protein binding transcription factor may or may not also interact with the template nucleic acid (either DNA or RNA) as well.
