Phosphorylated beta-catenin migrates to the nucleus where it functions as a coactivator of IRF3-dependent transcription (Yang P et al. 2010).

Beta-catenin transport to the nucleus is thought to occur in a NLS (nuclear localization signal)- and importin-independent manner through direct interaction with the nuclear pore complex (NPC) components. This has been shown to be the case for Wnt-signaling in mammalian cells (Yokoya F et al. 1999; Koike M et al. 2004; Sharma M et al. 2012)
