Summaries for NXT2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NXT2 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene contains a nuclear transport factor 2 (NTF2) domain, which plays an important role in the trafficking of macromolecules, ions, and small molecules between the cytoplasm and nucleus. This protein may also have a role in mRNA nuclear export. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been noted for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jun 2011]

GeneCards Summary for NXT2 Gene

NXT2 (Nuclear Transport Factor 2 Like Export Factor 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NXT2 include Diversion Colitis. Among its related pathways are RNA transport and Ribosome biogenesis in eukaryotes. An important paralog of this gene is NXT1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NXT2 Gene

  • Regulator of protein export for NES-containing proteins. Also plays a role in mRNA nuclear export.
