ran

Small G-protein (GTPase) required, together with importins a and b and pp15, for protein transport into the nucleus. The only known nucleotide exchange factor for ran is nuclear (RCC1), whereas the only known activating factor is cytoplasmic. This would provide a mechanism for vectorial transport. Ran-GTP binds importin and may cause dissociation of the transport complex. ...
