The majority of hnRNP proteins components are localized to the nucleus; however some shuttle between the nucleus and the cytoplasm, such as hnRNP K. hnRNP K, a 65 kDa protein, recruits a variety of molecular partners through two K homologous (KH) domains, which are required for protein-protein interactions. hnRNP K also contains several potential phosphorylation sites, including Ser 302, the major site of PKCd phosphorylation, which are thought to regulate various cellular functions, including sequence-specific DNA binding, transcription, RNA binding and nucleocytoplasmic shuttling.
