The nuclear envelope represents a structural and functional barrier between cytoplasm and nucleoplasm. Small molecules and solutes passively cross the nuclear envelope, whereas the transport of large proteins and RNA requires metabolic energy. Using in situ Xenopus oocyte nuclei, we characterized ATP-dependent ionic permeabilities on the external surface of… CONTINUE READING
