Molecular dissection of the nuclear pore complex.


The nuclear pore complex (NPC) is an approximately 120 megadalton (MDa) supramolecular assembly embedded in the double-membraned nuclear envelope (NE) that mediates bidirectional molecular trafficking between the cytoplasm and the nucleus of interphase eukaryotic cells. The structure of the NPC has been studied extensively by electron microscopy (EM), and a… (More)
