In a recent issue of Molecular Cell, Yoon et al. provide evidence for the control of nucleocytoplasmic transport by protein kinase signaling pathways through phosphorylation of RanBP3, an accessory factor in the Ran GTPase system. This mechanism may coordinate nucleocytoplasmic transport with other mitogenic effects of these pathways.
