The Mediator complex consists of about 25-30 proteins and is thought to facilitate transcription activation by acting as a molecular bridge between the RNA polymerase II (RNAPII) machinery and transcription factors (1). Mediator is recruited to target genes by transcription factors and plays an essential role in the recruitment and stabilization of the RNAPII transcription complex at promoters, as well as the activation of transcription post RNAPII recruitment (1-5). The Mediator complex also plays an important role in creating ‘chromatin loops’ that occur as a result of interactions between the transcription factor bound at distal enhancers and RNAPII bound at the proximal promoter, and works to sustain proper chromatin architecture during active transcription (6-8).

Mediator complex subunit 26 (MED26) plays a critical role in the transition of RNAPII from the initiation to elongation phase of transcription. The amino-terminal domain of MED26 is required for recruitment of the ELL- and pTEFb-containing complexes to target genes, which facilitates transcription elongation (9).
