Karyopherinbeta (Kapbeta) proteins bind nuclear localization and export signals (NLSs and NESs) to mediate nucleocytoplasmic trafficking, a process regulated by Ran GTPase through its nucleotide cycle. Diversity and complexity of signals recognized by Kap betas have prevented prediction of new Kap beta substrates. The structure of Kap beta 2 (also known as(More)
Kapbeta2 (also called transportin) recognizes PY nuclear localization signal (NLS), a new class of NLS with a R/H/Kx((2-5))PY motif. Here we show that Kapbeta2 complexes containing hydrophobic and basic PY-NLSs, as classified by the composition of an additional N-terminal motif, converge in structure only at consensus motifs, which explains ligand(More)
