CTP:phosphocholine cytidylyltransferase (CT) is a major regulatory enzyme in phosphatidylcholine synthesis in mammalian cells. CT is found in both soluble and particulate forms, both of which are nuclear. We report here the identification of a 21-residue sequence at the amino terminus of CT, 8KVNSRKRRKEVPGPNGATEED28, which was sufficient to direct beta-galactosidase into the cell nucleus. Further deletions from either end of this sequence greatly reduced the nuclear localization of beta… CONTINUE READING
