Functions in nuclear protein import as nuclear transport receptor. Serves as receptor for classical and arginine/glycine-rich nuclear localization signals (cNLS and rg-NLS) in cargo substrates (PubMed:15367670). Its predominant cargo substrate seems to be ribosomal proteins and ribosome biogenesis trans- and cis-acting factors (PubMed:9182759, PubMed:9321403, PubMed:15367670). Required for nuclear transport of YAP1, NOP1 and SOF1 (PubMed:11274141, PubMed:15367670). Mediates the nuclear import of histones H3 and H4 (PubMed:11694505). Mediates docking of the importin/substrate complex to the nuclear pore complex (NPC) through binding to repeat-containing nucleoporins. The complex is subsequently translocated through the pore by an energy requiring, Ran-dependent mechanism (PubMed:11423015). At the nucleoplasmic side of the NPC, GTP-Ran binding leads to release of the cargo (PubMed:9321403). The importin is re-exported from the nucleus to the cytoplasm where GTP hydrolysis releases Ran from importin. The directionality of nuclear import is thought to be conferred by an asymmetric distribution of the GTP- and GDP-bound forms of Ran between the cytoplasm and nucleus (PubMed:11423015). UniProt

Subunit Structure
Interacts with Ran (GSP1); interacts specifically with the GTP-bound form of Ran (GTP-Ran), protecting it from GTP hydrolysis and nucleotide exchange (PubMed:9321403). Interacts with RPL25; this interaction is dissociated by binding to Ran-GTP (PubMed:9321403). Interacts with YAP1; this interaction is dissociated by binding to Ran-GTP (PubMed:11274141). Interacts with NOP1; via its rg-NLS (PubMed:15367670). Interacts with SOF1; via its cNLS (PubMed:15367670). Interacts with histones H3 and H4; via their NLS (PubMed:11694505). Interacts with ABF1 (PubMed:15522095). UniProt

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Variation data (sourced from UniProt) shows non-genetic variation from the ExPASy   and dbSNP   websites.
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in purple originates from Phosphosite  .
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB

Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
