High impact information on TXLNA

  • The interactions of alpha-taxilin with alphaNAC and NAC but not with betaNAC were inhibited by syntaxin-4, indicating that alpha-taxilin binds to NAC mainly through its interaction with alphaNAC [1].
  • We have here found that alpha-taxilin interacts with the nascent polypeptide-associated complex (NAC), which is involved in transferring growing nascent polypeptide chains to appropriate co-translationally acting factors [1].
