Previous GeneCards Identifiers for NUTF2 Gene
This gene encodes a cytosolic factor that facilitates protein transport into the nucleus. The encoded protein is required for nuclear import of the small Ras-like GTPase, Ran which is involved in numerous cellular processes. This protein also interacts with the nuclear pore complex glycoprotein p62. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2016]
GeneCards Summary for NUTF2 Gene
NUTF2 (Nuclear Transport Factor 2) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include transporter activity and Ran GTPase binding.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NUTF2 Gene
Facilitates protein transport into the nucleus. Interacts with the nucleoporin p62 and with Ran. Acts at a relatively late stage of nuclear protein import, subsequent to the initial docking of nuclear import ligand at the nuclear envelope. Could be part of a multicomponent system of cytosolic factors that assemble at the pore complex during nuclear import.
