Gene: KPNA1 (karyopherin subunit alpha 1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: KPNA1
Name: karyopherin subunit alpha 1
Description: Predicted to have nuclear localization sequence binding activity. Predicted to be involved in NLS-bearing protein import into nucleus and postsynapse to nucleus signaling pathway. Localizes to the cytosol and nucleoplasm.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
