Nuclear targeting signal recognistion: a key control point in nuclear transport?

Jans, David A; Xiao, Chong-Yun; Lam, Mark H C

Description

Recent progress indicates that there are multiple pathways of nucleocytoplasmic transport which involve specific targeting sequences, such as nuclear localization sequences (NLSs), and cytosolic receptor molecules of the importin/karyopherin superfamily which recognise and dock the NLS-containing proteins at the nuclear pore. This first step of nuclear import/export is of central importance, with the affinity of the importin-targeting sequence interaction a critical parameter in determining...[Show more]
