  • Function

    GTP-binding protein involved in nucleocytoplasmic transport. Required for the import of protein into the nucleus and also for RNA export. Involved in chromatin condensation and control of cell cycle (By similarity). The complex with BIRC5/ survivin plays a role in mitotic spindle formation by serving as a physical scaffold to help deliver the RAN effector molecule TPX2 to microtubules.
    Enhances AR-mediated transactivation. Transactivation decreases as the poly-Gln length within AR increases.
  • Tissue specificity

    Expressed in a variety of tissues.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the small GTPase superfamily. Ran family.
  • Post-translational

    The N-terminus is blocked.
  • Cellular localization

    Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Melanosome. Becomes dispersed throughout the cytoplasm during mitosis. Identified by mass spectrometry in melanosome fractions from stage I to stage IV.

Customer reviews and Q&As


I am sorry to confirm this antibody has not been tested for which form of RAN it can detect. I can only confirm that the immunogen as provided on the datasheet:

Synthetic peptide: AAQGEPQVQFKLV, corresponding to amino acids 2-14 of Human Ran.

We aim to provide as much information as possible to customers and am sorry there is no data to help answer your question on this occasion.
