Nuclear pore complex outer rings: no longer “one size fits all”

A team led by researchers from Osaka University and NICT finds that, contrary to popular belief, the outer rings of eukaryotic cell nuclear pore complexes are asymmetrical rather than perfectly identical

In eukaryotic cells, molecules can only move into or out of the nucleus through specialized channels called nuclear pore complexes (NPCs). Each NPC ha...
