NPAS3 localization is affected by the region encoding the NLS and independently by ARNT. a Immunofluorescence images demonstrating that NPAS3 is predominantly localized to the nucleus, which is enhanced by co-expression of ARNT. Arrows indicate cytoplasmic localization of NPAS3. ×400 magnification, scale bar = 10 μm. b Quantification of localization of NPAS3 signal. Localization was scored as either nuclear or nuclear = cytoplasmic by an individual blinded to NPAS3 construct identity and to the presence or absence of ARNT. *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001. c Output of NetNES 1.0 prediction software indicating a predicted NES in the region encoding the bHLH domain of NPAS3, indicated by scores above the threshold (red line)
