|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Calculated MW||109964 Da|
|Antigen Region||137-166 aa|
|Other Names||Exportin-T, Exportin(tRNA), tRNA exportin, XPOT|
|Target/Specificity||This XPOT antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 137-166 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human XPOT.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is prepared by Saturated Ammonium Sulfate (SAS) precipitation followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||XPOT Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Mediates the nuclear export of aminoacylated tRNAs. In the nucleus binds to tRNA and to the GTPase Ran in its active GTP- bound form. Docking of this trimeric complex to the nuclear pore complex (NPC) is mediated through binding to nucleoporins. Upon transit of a nuclear export complex into the cytoplasm, disassembling of the complex and hydrolysis of Ran-GTP to Ran-GDP (induced by RANBP1 and RANGAP1, respectively) cause release of the tRNA from the export receptor. XPOT then return to the nuclear compartment and mediate another round of transport. The directionality of nuclear export is thought to be conferred by an asymmetric distribution of the GTP- and GDP-bound forms of Ran between the cytoplasm and nucleus.|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Note=Nuclear, once bound to tRNA and Ran the complex translocates to the cytoplasm Shuttles between the nucleus and the cytoplasm|

XPOT is a protein belonging to the RAN-GTPase exportin family that mediates export of tRNA from the nucleus to the cytoplasm. Translocation of tRNA to the cytoplasm occurs once exportin has bound both tRNA and GTP-bound RAN.
