Previous GeneCards Identifiers for RANBP1 Gene
This gene encodes a protein that forms a complex with Ras-related nuclear protein (Ran) and metabolizes guanoside triphosphate (GTP). This complex participates in the regulation of the cell cycle by controlling transport of proteins and nucleic acids into the nucleus. There are multiple pseudogenes for this gene on chromosomes 9, 12, 17, and X. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2013]

RANBP1 (RAN Binding Protein 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RANBP1 include Digeorge Syndrome and Ichthyosis, Congenital, Autosomal Recessive 9. Among its related pathways are E2F transcription factor network and HIV Life Cycle. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include GTPase activator activity and GDP-dissociation inhibitor activity. An important paralog of this gene is RANBP2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for RANBP1 Gene
Plays a role in RAN-dependent nucleocytoplasmic transport. Alleviates the TNPO1-dependent inhibition of RAN GTPase activity and mediates the dissociation of RAN from proteins involved in transport into the nucleus (By similarity). Induces a conformation change in the complex formed by XPO1 and RAN that triggers the release of the nuclear export signal of cargo proteins (PubMed:20485264). Promotes the disassembly of the complex formed by RAN and importin beta. Promotes dissociation of RAN from a complex with KPNA2 and CSE1L (By similarity). Required for normal mitotic spindle assembly and normal progress through mitosis via its effect on RAN (PubMed:17671426). Does not increase the RAN GTPase activity by itself, but increases GTP hydrolysis mediated by RANGAP1 (PubMed:7882974). Inhibits RCC1-dependent exchange of RAN-bound GDP by GTP (PubMed:7882974, PubMed:7616957).
