The nuclear envelope and the nuclear pore are important structures that both separate and selectively connect the nucleoplasm and the cytoplasm. The requirements for specific targeting of proteins to the plant nuclear envelope and nuclear pore are poorly understood. How are transmembrane-domain proteins sorted to the nuclear envelope and nuclear pore membranes? What protein-protein interactions are involved in associating other proteins to the nuclear pore? Are there plant-specific aspects to… CONTINUE READING
