Probing Large Protein Systems

Approach yields first detailed analysis of 456-protein nuclear pore complex
Department: Science & Technology | Collection: Life Sciences
Movie shows that the nuclear pore complex is composed of protein-based substructures of various types???outer rings, inner rings, membrane rings, linker nucleoporins, and FG (phenylalanine-glycine) nucleoporins. Pore membrane is gray.

Some Assembly Required
Protein-based substructures???outer rings (yellow), inner rings (purple), membrane rings (brown), linker nucleoporins (green), and FG (phenylalanine-glycine) nucleoporins???make up the nuclear pore complex (center). Pore membrane is gray.
