High impact information on RAN-1

  • The yeast two-hybrid system was used to isolate cDNA clones encoding proteins of approximately 28 kDa (At-RanBP1a, At-RanBP1b) that interact with the GTP-bound forms of the Ran1, Ran2 and Ran3 proteins of Arabidopsis thaliana [1].
  • We have isolated a genomic cosmid clone of the Ran1 gene of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) and found that the gene is about 2.2 kb and has got 5 introns [2].
