I wouldn't be surprised if you found GAPDH in the nuclear
fraction. Despite the comment "GAPDH is a glycolytic enzyme; glycolysis
takes place in the cytoplasm", it is a promiscuous protein with a number of
other roles identified in the cell, one of which just happens to be a DNA
repair enzyme. I also seem to remember it gets translocated to the nucleus
in certain forms of apoptosis. Check out....

glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase, in mammalian cells. Life Sci.
