Evc2 is present in both the cytoplasm and the nucleus of MEF cells. Western blot analysis of total, cytoplasmic and nuclear proteins from wild-type (+/+) and Evc2 (-/-) (a) and Evc (-/-) (b) MEFs. The purity of the cytoplasmic and nuclear protein samples was confirmed using antibodies to α-tubulin (approximately 50 kDa) exclusively cytoplasmic and c-Jun (approximately 43 kDa), exclusively nuclear. Full-length Evc2 (140 kDa) was detected in both the cytoplasmic and nuclear samples. Full-length Evc protein (130 kDa) was only detected in the cytoplasm. Antibodies to both proteins detected several additional bands that are assumed to be non-specific as they are present in the null MEFs.
