RelevanceThe nuclear pore complex is a structure that extends across the nuclear envelope and regulates the flow of macromolecules between the cytoplasm and the nucleus. Nucleoporins are the main components of the nuclear pore complex in eukaryotic cells. Nup 62 is localized to the nuclear pore central plug. This protein associates with the importin alpha/beta complex which is involved in the import of proteins containing nuclear localization signals. There are multiple transcript variants of this gene, however, they encode a single protein isoform. This protein undergoes post-translational modifications. It contains about 10 N-acetylglucosamine side chain sites.
