KPNA2 is a member of the karyopherin alpha family that recognized cargo proteins at the nuclear pore to facilitate their nucleocytoplasmic transport (reviewed in Christiansen and Dyrskjot, 2013). KPNA2 is highly expressed in many cancers and has been shown to be stimulated by estrogen (Tan et al, 2014). KPNA2 expression is negatively regulated by direct binding of mIR-26A and mIR-26B to the 3'UTR (Tan et al, 2014).
