Gene: Kpna2 (karyopherin subunit alpha 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Kpna2
Name: karyopherin subunit alpha 2
CRRD ID: 621419
Description: Predicted to have several functions, including histone deacetylase binding activity; nuclear import signal receptor activity; and nuclear localization sequence binding activity. Involved in regulation of transcription by glucose. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including cytoplasmic stress granule; extrinsic component of postsynaptic specialization membrane; and nucleoplasm. Orthologous to human KPNA2 (karyopherin subunit alpha 2); PARTICIPATES IN influenza A pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,4-dinitrotoluene; 2,6-dinitrotoluene; 6-propyl-2-thiouracil.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: importin; importin subunit alpha-1; importin subunit alpha-2; karyopherin (importin) alpha 2; karyopherin alpha 2; MGC108637; nuclear import protein
