MCB130 Lectures 5, 6 R. Schekman Membrane Transport: Nucleocytoplasmic Transport I. Nuclear envelope A. Nuclear membrane 1. Pores are large structures that span junction of inner and outer membrane. 2. Transport of particles bi-directionally through pores. B. Pore complex 1. Pore complexes contain an aqueous channel through which small molecules diffuse freely and non-selectively. 2. Larger molecules are actively transported and require sorting signals (non- cleaved). 3. Transport is post-translational and does not involve unfolding and refolding of transported proteins. II. Signals and receptors A. Targeting signals 1. Different classes of nuclear localizing signals (NLS) direct import from cytoplasm to nucleoplasm. 2. Other signals mediate export (NES) from the nucleoplasm to the cytoplasm. 3. Both signals are necessary and sufficient to sustain bi-directional transport. B. Signals decoded by soluble receptors 1. Importin proteins bind cargo proteins in the cytoplasm and deliver through the pore.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
