  He's thinks he can use it as a marker for nuclear transport. :-) :-)

  Just to answer the question, I think you need to look up references by
P. Silver. She worked on localization of one of the gal's. I'm pretty
sure it was GAL4.

DanZ (who knows that even a single molecule of a transcription factor
can stimulate transcription :-) ;-)
