The molecular mechanism for nuclear transport and its application

PMCID: 5509903
PMID: 28713609
DOI: 10.5115/acb.2017.50.2.77

[…] ear targeting.Many researchers have tried to develop ideal drug delivery systems by using modification of NLSs []. Based on previous results, several bioinformatic tools, such as NucPred, NLS Mapper, NESbase and NLSdb, have been developed about subcellular localization of proteins []. Using these tools, we can search the subcellular locations of targeting molecules. More importantly, users can pre […]


Sequence and structural analyses of nuclear export signals in the NESdb database

Mol Biol Cell
PMCID: 3442415
PMID: 22833565
DOI: 10.1091/mbc.E12-01-0046

[…] real from false-positive NESs and to improve prediction efforts in the , ) made the first attempt to systematically analyze NES properties of 67 NESs that were collected in a database named NESbase. Their study revealed interesting NES properties, such as overrepresentation of acidic residues in nonhydrophobic positions of NESs, preference for α-helical structure, and tendency of NESs to […]


Nucleocytoplasmic Shuttling Activity of Ataxin 3

PLoS One
PMCID: 2688764
PMID: 19503814
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0005834

[…] dentified by consensus to the ΦX1–3ΦX2–3ΦXΦ motif (Φ indicates a large hydrophobic residue, and X indicates any amino acid), and using the prediction algorithm NetNES ( ), and fused to Rev(1.4)-GFP fusion protein (the plasmid encoding Rev(1.4)-GFP was kindly provided by Beric R. Henderson). The putative sequences that were assayed include: NES1, residues […]


Identification and characterization of human Mex 3 proteins, a novel family of evolutionarily conserved RNA binding proteins differentially localized to processing bodies

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 1851655
PMID: 17267406
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkm016

[…] ml) (). Potential structural protein domains were predicted by SMART ( () and PSORT ( (). Consensus sequence L-x(,)-[LIVFM-x(,)-L-x-[LI] from NESbase ( () was used to predict NES sequence localization. Amino acid sequences were aligned by ClustalW ( () and T-coffee […]


Identification of a novel Rev interacting cellular protein
