Caenorhabditis elegans


CELE_R05D11.3, R05D11.3
ran-4 encodes a ortholog of NUCLEAR TRANSPORT FACTOR 2 (NTF2) from S. cerevisiae and metazoa, which is predicted to interact with nucleoporins and to promote transport of RAN-1(+GDP) into the nucleus; RAN-4/NTF2 proteins are paralogous to the N-terminal domain of RasGAP SH3 binding proteins such as Drosophila RASPUTIN, and to delta-5-3-ketosteroid isomerases, while having no homology to Ran proteins per se; RAN-4 is essential for early embryogenesis; in mass RNAi assays, ran-4 is needed for embryonic viability, normally rapid growth, fertility, and normal pronuclear envelopes in the embryo.
