Generation of GTP-bound Ran on chromatin by its guanine nucleotide-exchange factor RCC1 provides a spatial signal that controls nuclear-envelope formation, nucleo-cytoplasmic transport and mitotic spindle assembly. A study now identifies an unusual post-translational modification, α-N-methylation of the amino-terminal tail of RCC1, which anchors the protein on chromosomes.
