Quick Reference

A family of more than 100 different proteins that are localized in each nuclear pore complex (NPC) (q.v.). Some of these proteins are structural components of the organelle, while others facilitate the transport of proteins and RNAs through the NPCs. Some nucleoporins play a role in tethering telomeres (q.v.) to the nuclear envelope.
