Exportin-5

The XPO5 gene encodes a protein which is member of the karyopherin family. These proteins are responsible for transport of small RNAs and RNA-binding proteins from the nucleus to the cytoplasm. A missense mutation was described in association with congenital nephrotic syndrome. However an involment of this gene in the pathogenesis of nephrotic syndrome is not generally accepted.
