Proteins are directed to cellular compartments by specific localizationsignals. A GTP-driven cycle has now been identified as a mechanismfor protein targeting to the nucleolus. The involvement of aGTP switch suggests that nucleolar localization can be regulatedand may be responsive to extracellular stimuli via signalingpathways. The uncovered mechanism also implies that localizationis determined by increased retention rather than directed targeting.
