IPO.bd.13

A gene on chromosome 1q34.1 that encodes importin 13, a member of the karyopherin/importin-beta family of transport receptors, which mediates the import of specific cargo proteins from the cytoplasm to the nucleus in a Ras-dependent nuclear protein-GTPase system.

In addition, the other importins involved in nuclear translocation of corticosteroid-GR complex include importin 7, importin 8, and importin 13 [29, 48, 57, 58].
GR can also be carried into the nucleus by importin 7 and importin 13 [55, 58, 59](Figure 4).
