I have list of genes and I would like to have protein-coding and transcription factor genes from that list. Is there a database or tool which I can put my list of genes as an input and get the transcription factors ones only as an output? Thanks!

Search for the list of transcription factors for the organism you are working with and compare with your gene list.

Thank you for your reply, I am working on human as organism. Which database I could use to obtain transcription factors for human?

JASPAR, TRANSFAC, UniPROBE, and Taipale are databases that include human TFs. You could also search GeneCards, I think, but I think you'd have to pay for their web service in order to automate searches on many TFs/genes.

There is also AnimalTFDB which includes additional classification and annotation: http://bioinfo.life.hust.edu.cn/AnimalTFDB
