Summaries for RANGAP1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RANGAP1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein that associates with the nuclear pore complex and participates in the regulation of nuclear transport. The encoded protein interacts with Ras-related nuclear protein 1 (RAN) and regulates guanosine triphosphate (GTP)-binding and exchange. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2013]

GeneCards Summary for RANGAP1 Gene

    Quaternary structure:
    • Homodimer. Forms a tight complex in association with RANBP2/NUP358 and UBE2I/UBC9, the ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme E2. Interacts with UBE2I; the interaction conjugates SUMO1 to RANGAP1, and subsequently stabilizes interactions of sumoylated RANGAP1 with RANBP2/NUP358. The SUMO1/RANGAP1/UBC9/NUP358 complex associates with nuclear pore complexes. Interacts with TRAF6.

Post-translational modifications for RANGAP1 Gene

  • Phosphorylated occurs before nuclear envelope breakdown and continues throughout mitosis. Phosphorylated by the M-phase kinase cyclin B/Cdk1, in vitro. Differential timimg of dephosphorylation occurs during phases of mitosis. The phosphorylated form remains associated with RANBP2/NUP358 and the SUMO E2-conjugating enzyme, UBC9, on nuclear pore complex (NPC) diassembly and during mitosis.
  • Sumoylated with SUMO1. Sumoylation is necessary for targeting to the nuclear envelope (NE), and for association with mitotic spindles and kinetochores during mitosis. Also required for interaction with RANBP2 and is mediated by UBC9.
  • Ubiquitination at Lys 296 and Lys 452
  • Modification sites at PhosphoSitePlus

Cytoplasm. Nucleus membrane; Peripheral membrane protein; Cytoplasmic side. Chromosome, centromere, kinetochore. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, spindle pole. Note=Cytoplasmic during interphase. Targeted to the nuclear rim after sumoylation. During mitosis, associates with mitotic spindles. Association with kinetochores appears soon after nuclear envelope breakdown and persists until late anaphase. Mitotic location also requires sumoylation.
