Transcription Factor II E (TFIIE) is one of several general transcription factors that make up the RNA polymerase II preinitiation complex.cite book | author = Lewin, Benjamin | title = Genes VIII | publisher = Pearson Prentice Hall | location = Upper Saddle River, NJ | year = 2004 | pages = p636-637 | isbn = 0-13-144946-X | oclc = | doi = ]

Transcription Factor II E is encoded by the gene|GTF2E1 and gene|GTF2E2 genes.cite journal | author = Ohkuma Y, Hashimoto S, Roeder RG, Horikoshi M | title = Identification of two large subdomains in TFIIE-alpha on the basis of homology between Xenopus and human sequences | journal = Nucleic Acids Res. | volume = 20 | issue = 21 | pages = 5838 | year = 1992 | pmid = 1454543 | doi = | issn = ] cite journal | author = Heng HH, Xiao H, Shi XM, Greenblatt J, Tsui LC | title = Genes encoding general initiation factors for RNA polymerase II transcription are dispersed in the human genome | journal = Hum.
