Subcellular locations from UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for LANCL2 Gene

Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Cell membrane. Note=Localizes to the juxta-nuclear vesicles (PubMed:16979580). Associates with the cortical actin cytoskeleton (PubMed:16979580). Cholesterol depletion by methyl-beta-cyclodextrin causes partial dissociation from the cell membrane in vitro and an enhanced cell detachment from the matrix in vivo (PubMed:16979580). Membrane-association is important for the increased cellular sensitivity to an anticancer drug (adriamycin) (PubMed:16979580). {ECO:0000269 PubMed:16979580}.
