Nucleo-Cytoplasmic Exchange

ID #1236

Is the exportin originally located out in the cytoplasm or inside the nucleus? If the original location is out in the cytoplasm, how does it know when to come in to bind to a molecule that needs to exit?

The regular "home" for an exportin is in the nucleus, where it is ready to transport the next molecule that needs to get out of the nucleus.
