Nucleoporin NUP88/NUP82 (IPR037700)

Short name: NUP88/NUP82

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


This entry include a nucleoporin known as NUP88 in animals and NUP82 in yeasts. NUP88 is a component of the nuclear pore complex (NPC), which is the only means by which macromolecules enter and exit the nucleus [PMID: 9049309]. NUP82 is also a component of the NPC subcomplex (with NUP159 and NSP1) which tethers nucleoporins to the nuclear membrane [PMID: 9843582].
