A Link between the Synthesis of Nucleoporins and the Biogenesis of the Nuclear Envelope


The nuclear pore complex (NPC) is a multicomponent structure containing a subset of proteins that bind nuclear transport factors or karyopherins and mediate their movement across the nuclear envelope. By altering the expression of a single nucleoporin gene, NUP53, we showed that the overproduction of Nup53p altered nuclear transport and had a profound… (More)
