High impact information on RAN3

  • 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].
  • AtMBD5 and AtRAN3 were clearly shown to interact in the nucleus by BiFC [2].
