This IgG2a mouse monoclonal antibody was generated against human Nuclear Transport Factor 2 (NTF2) and recognizes human and xenopus homologs.
Nucleocytoplasmic transport plays an important role in the regulation of diverse cellular processes, including transcription and translation, growth factor-mediated signaling, stress responses, and cell cycle control. Nuclear transport factor 2 (NTF2) is a soluble transport protein originally identified by its ability to stimulate nuclear localization signal (NLS)-dependent protein import in digitonin-permeabilized cells. NTF2 has been shown to bind nuclear pore complex proteins and the GDP form of Ran in vitro.

Characterization of anti-NTF2 (5A3) mAb.
Anti-NTF2 mAbs are monospecific for NTF2. Recombinant human untagged (15 ng) or myc-tagged (85 ng) NTF2 protein and HeLa cytosol were separated on 15% SDS-PAGE gels, transferred to nitrocellulose, and probed with anti-NTF2 mAb. 5A3 was used at 5 mg/ml purified antibody.
