Abstract
This work describes the research focused on one particular nucleocytoplasmic lectin that is expressed in tobacco leaves after jasmonate treatment or insect herbivory: Nictaba. To investigate the function of Nictaba in the plant cell, different approaches were followed. First, interacting partners for Nictaba, as well as co-regulated proteins were identified in the plant cell nucleus. Furthermore, the carbohydrate-binding activity of Nictaba was analyzed in detail. Finally, the effect of Nictaba on nucleocytoplasmic transport and its trafficking pathways in animal cells were investigated.
