In the nucleus the WWTR1 (TAZ) transcriptional coactivator can bind the RUNX2 transcription factor to form a complex. This interaction has not been experimentally characterized in human cells but is inferred from properties of the homologous mouse proteins. The stoichiometry of this complex is unknown (Cui et al. 2003).

Formation of the RUNX2:WWTR1 complex is implicated in promotion of luminal breast cancer progression through regulation of E-cadherin (CDH1) and cross-talk with ERBB2 (HER2) signaling (Brusgard et al. 2015).
