Research reveals key interaction that opens the channel into the cell’s nucleus

Research reveals key interaction that opens the channel into the cell’s nucleusScientists have uncovered crucial steps in the dynamic dance that dilates and constricts the nuclear pore complex. Their ongoing work has shown this elaborate portal to and from the cell’s nucleus is much more than the inert structure it was once thought to be. More »
