Nuclear Pore Complex (NPC) (Tran and Wente, 2006).  The structure of the NPC core (400kD) has been determined at 7.4 Å resolution revealing a curved Y-shaped architecture with the coat nucleoporin interactions forming the central "triskeleton".  32 copies of the coat neucloporin complex (CNC) structure dock into the cryoelectron tomographic reconstruction of the assembled human NPC, thus accounting for ~16 MDa of it's mass (Stuwe et al. 2015).  Import of integral membrane proteins (mono- and polytopic) into the the inner nuclear membrane occurs by an active, transport factor-dependent process (Laba et al. 2015). Ndc1 and Pom52 are partially redundant NPC components that are essential for proper assembly of the NPC. The absence of Ndc1p and Pom152p results in aberrant pores that have enlarged diameters and lack proteinaceous material, leading to increased diffusion between the cytoplasm and the nucleus (Madrid et al. 2006). Pom152 is a transmembrane protein within the nuclear pore complex (NPC) of fungi that is important for NPC assembly and structure. Pom152 is comprised of a short amino-terminal region that remains on the cytosolic side of the nuclear envelope (NE) and interacts with NPC proteins, a transmembrane domain, and a large, glycosylated carboxy-terminal domain within the NE lumen. Here we show that the N-terminal 200 amino acids of Pom152 that include only the amino-terminal and transmembrane regions are sufficient for localization to the NPC (Brown et al. 2021). Atg39 selectively captures the inner nuclear membrane into lumenal vesicles for delivery to the autophagosome (Chandra et al. 2021). The inner nuclear membrane (INM) changes its protein composition during gametogenesis, sheding light on mechanisms used to shape the INM proteome of spores (Shelton et al. 2021). Several nucleoporins with FG-repeats (phenylalanine-glycine repeats) (barrier nucleoporins) possess potential amyloidogenic properties (Danilov et al. 2023).  A multiscale structure of the yeast nuclear pore complex has been described, and its implications have been discussed (Akey et al. 2023).  NPCs direct the nucleocytoplasmic transport of macromolecules, and Akey et al. 2023 provided a composite multiscale structure of the yeast NPC, based on improved 3D density maps from cryoEM and AlphaFold2 models. Key features of the inner and outer rings were integrated into a comprehensive model. The authors resolved flexible connectors that tie together the core scaffold, along with equatorial transmembrane complexes and a lumenal ring that anchor this channel within the pore membrane. The organization of the nuclear double outer ring revealed an architecture that may be shared with ancestral NPCs. Additional connections between the core scaffold and the central transporter suggest that under certain conditions, a degree of local organization is present at the periphery of the transport machinery. These connectors may couple conformational changes in the scaffold to the central transporter to modulate transport. Collectively, this analysis provides insights into assembly, transport, and NPC evolution (Akey et al. 2023).

Fungal Nuclear Pore Complex (NPC) with 29 components.  Stuwe et al. 2015 presented the reconstitution of the ~425-kilodalton inner ring complex (IRC), which forms the central transport channel and diffusion barrier of the NPC, revealing its interaction network and equimolar stoichiometry. The Nsp1•Nup49•Nup57 channel nucleoporin heterotrimer (CNT) attaches to the IRC solely through the adaptor nucleoporin Nic96. The CNT•Nic96 structure reveals that Nic96 functions as an assembly sensor that recognizes the three-dimensional architecture of the CNT, thereby mediating the incorporation of a defined CNT state into the NPC. They proposed that the IRC adopts a relatively rigid scaffold that recruits the CNT to primarily form the diffusion barrier of the NPC, rather than enabling channel dilation (Stuwe et al. 2015 presented the reconstitution of the ~425-kilodalton inner ring complex (IRC), which forms the central transport channel and diffusion barrier of the NPC, revealing its interaction network and equimolar stoichiometry.

Nuclear Pore Complex, NPC, with 86 protein components.  NPCs mediate nucleocytoplasmic transport and gain transport selectivity through nucleoporin FG domains. Chug et al. 2015 reported a structural analysis of the frog FG Nup62•58•54 complex. It comprises a ≈13 nanometer-long trimerization interface with an unusual 2W3F coil, a canonical heterotrimeric coiled coil, and a kink that enforces a compact six-helix bundle. Nup54 also contains a ferredoxin-like domain. Chug et al. 2015 further identified a heterotrimeric Nup93-binding module for NPC anchorage. The quaternary structure alternations in the Nup62 complex, which were previously proposed to trigger a general gating of the NPC, are incompatible with the trimer structure. Chug et al. 2015 suggested that the highly elongated Nup62 complex projects barrier-forming FG repeats far into the central NPC channel, supporting a barrier that guards the entire cross section. The Sun1/UNC84A protein and Sun2/UNC84B may function redundantly in early HIV-1 infection steps and therefore influence HIV-1 replication and pathogenesis (Schaller et al. 2017).  The integral transmembrane nucleoporin Pom121 functionally links nuclear pore complex assembly to nuclear envelope formation (Antonin et al. 2005) and ensures efficient HIV-1 pre-integration complex nuclear import (Guo et al. 2018). Mechanosensing at the nuclear envelope by nuclear pore complex stretch activation involves cell membrane integrins (TC# 8.A.54) and SUN proteins, SUN1 and SUN2, in the nuclear membrane (Donnaloja et al. 2019). TMX2 is a thioredoxin-like protein that facilitates the transport of proteins across the nuclear membrane (Oguro and Imaoka 2019). Torsin ATPase deficiency leads to defects in nuclear pore biogenesis and sequestration of the myelokd leukemia factor 2, MLF2 (Rampello et al. 2020). Cdk1 (CDC2, CDC2.8A, CDKN1, P34CDC2) acts as a receptor for hepatitis C virus (HCV) in hepatocytes and facilitates its cell entry (Lupberger et al. 2011). G4C2 repeat RNA initiates a POM121-mediated reduction in specific nucleoporins (Coyne et al. 2020) (Pom121: acc# A8CG34). Defects in nucleocytoplasmic transport and accumulation of specific nuclear-pore-complex-associated proteins play roles in multiple neurodegenerative diseases, including C9orf72 Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia (ALS/FTD). Using super-resolution structured illumination microscopy, Coyne et al. 2020 have explored the mechanism by which nucleoporins are altered in nuclei isolated from C9orf72 induced pluripotent stem-cell-derived neurons (iPSNs). Of the 23 nucleoporins evaluated, they observed a reduction in a subset of 8, including key components of the nuclear pore complex scaffold and the transmembrane nucleoporin POM121. Reduction in POM121 appeared to initiate a decrease in the expression of seven additional nucleoporins, ultimately affecting the localization of the Ran GTPase and subsequent cellular toxicity in C9orf72 iPSNs. Thus, the expression of expanded C9orf72 ALS/FTD repeat RNA affects nuclear POM121 expression in the initiation of a pathological cascade affecting nucleoporin levels within neuronal nuclei and ultimately downstream neuronal survival (Coyne et al. 2020). Involved in the organization of the nuclear envelope, implicating EMD, SUN1 and A-type lamina (Gudise et al. 2011), but it also promotes breast cancer metastasis by positively regulating TGFbeta signaling (Kong et al. 2021). Nucleoporin POM121 signals TFEB-mediated autophagy via activation of the SIGMAR1/sigma-1 receptor chaperone by pridopidine (Wang et al. 2022). AI-based structural prediction empowers integrative structural analysis of human nuclear pores (Mosalaganti et al. 2022). With a molecular weight of approximately 120 MDa, the human NPC is one of the largest protein complexes. Its ~1000 proteins are taken in multiple copies from a set of about 30 distinct nucleoporins (NUPs). They can be roughly categorized into two classes. Scaffold NUPs contain folded domains and form a cylindrical scaffold architecture around a central channel. Intrinsically disordered NUPs line the scaffold and extend into the central channel where they interact with cargo complexes. The NPC architecture is highly dynamic. It responds to changes in nuclear envelope tension with conformational breathing that manifests in dilation and constriction movements. AI-based predictions generated an extensive repertoire of structural models of human NUPs and their subcomplexes (Mosalaganti et al. 2022). The 70-MDa atomically resolved model covers >90% of the human NPC scaffold. It captures conformational changes that occur during dilation and constriction. It also reveals the precise anchoring sites for intrinsically disordered NUPs, the identification of which is a prerequisite for a complete and dynamic model of the NPC. This exempli-fies how AI-based structure predictions may accelerate the elucidation of subcellular architecture at atomic resolution. The nucleocytoplasmic transport protein, importin-5, plays a role in the crosstalk between activin and BMP signalling in human testicular cancer cell lines (Radhakrishnan et al. 2023). Viral targeting of importin alpha-mediated nuclear import blocks innate immunity (Vogel et al. 2023).  The nuclear pore protein POM121 regulates subcellular localization and transcriptional activity of PPARgamma. (Yu et al. 2024)Stabilization of KPNB1 by deubiquitinase USP7 promotes glioblastoma progression through the YBX1-NLGN3 axis (Li et al. 2024).

Ciliate nucleopore complex, NPC.  Regulates protein import and nuclear division (Malone et al. 2008). The NPC contributes to nucleus-selective transport in ciliates (Iwamoto et al. 2009).  The transmembrane components, Pom121 and Pom82, localize exclusively to the macro (MAC)- and micro (MIC)-nuclear NPCs, respectively. Functional nuclear dimorphism in ciliates is likely to depend on compositional and structural specificity of the NPCs (Iwamoto et al. 2017).

The nuclear envelope consists of the outer and the inner nuclear membrane, the nuclear lamina and the nuclear pore complexes, which regulate nuclear import and export (Batsios et al. 2019). The major constituent of the nuclear lamina of Dictyostelium is the lamin NE81. It can form filaments like B-type lamins, and it interacts with Sun1, as well as with the LEM/HeH-family protein Src1. Sun1 and Src1 are nuclear envelope transmembrane proteins involved in the centrosome-nucleus connection and nuclear envelope stability at the nucleolar regions, respectively. In conjunction with a KASH-domain protein, Sun1 usually forms a so-called LINC complex. Two proteins with functions reminiscent of KASH-domain proteins at the outer nuclear membrane of Dictyostelium are known; interaptin which serves as an actin connector and the kinesin Kif9 which plays a role in the microtubule-centrosome connector, both of which lack the conserved KASH-domain. The link of the centrosome to the nuclear envelope is essential for the insertion of the centrosome into the nuclear envelope and appropriate spindle formation. Centrosome insertion is involved in permeabilization of the mitotic nucleus, which ensures access of tubulin dimers and spindle assembly factors (Batsios et al. 2019).
