・ The first crystal structure analysis of a cargo-free nuclear transport receptor, transportin 1 (Trn1)
・ The first systematic structure analysis of a transport receptor (Trn1) upon NLS (nuclear localization signal) binding
・ Interaction experiments using Trn1 mutants and by Surface Plasmon Resonance as well as the X-ray crystallographic analyses of cargo-free Trn1 and its complex with NLSs have elucidated a nuclear transport mechanism of proteins by a transport receptor (Trn1)
