for 30 min at room temperature. Then, trypsin/chymotrypsin- digested samples of KPNB1 obtained from the UV-crosslinking experiments with various concentrations of compound 1 were analyzed by nanoflow liquid chromatography and tandem mass spectrometry. The tandem mass spectra of the trypsin/chymotrypsin-digested KPNB1-compound 1 adducts showed 10 peptides coupled to compound 1 (Table S1, the Supplementary Information). Among these adducts, we found that the amounts of three of the products, 256MG*PALF261, 475SS*LAEAAY482, and 483EAADVADDQ*EEPATY497 (amino acid numbering taken from IMB1_HUMAN, SwissProt: Q14974), increased in a dose-dependent manner, suggesting that compound 1 binds at the specific site of KPNB1 (Table 1). Even though relative intensities of these peptides increased up to 10 μM compound 1, the amounts of these peptides markedly decreased at higher concentrations of compound 1 (100 μM), probably owing to the non-specific binding of compound 1 to KPNB1, which would have interfered with specific binding.

In this approach, the molar fraction of KPNB1 and compound 2 was varied, while keeping the total concentration ([KPNB1]+[2]) constant. The fluorescence intensity was measured at 520 nm, and the changes in the fluorescence intensity were plotted versus the molar fraction of KPNB1 in PBS (pH 8.0), showing that linear regression fittings were made at the two extremes of the curve (Figure 2). The maximum fluorescence change were observed at the 1/2 molar fraction of 2, suggesting that compound 2 and KPNB1 formed the complex with a 1:1
