Nucleoporin NUP145 - P49687 (NU145_YEAST)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

  • Number of PDB entries for P49687: 9
Functions as a component of the nuclear pore complex (NPC). NPC components, collectively referred to as nucleoporins (NUPs), can play the role of both NPC structural components and of docking or interaction partners for transiently associated nuclear transport factors. Active directional transport is assured by both, a Phe-Gly (FG) repeat affinity gradient for these transport factors across the NPC and a transport cofactor concentration gradient across the nuclear envelope (GSP1 and GSP2 GTPases associated predominantly with GTP in the nucleus, with GDP in the cytoplasm). NUP145 is autocatalytically cleaved in vivo in 2 polypeptides which assume different functions in the NPC. NUP145N as one of the FG repeat nucleoporins participates in karyopherin interactions and contains part of the autocatalytic cleavage activity. NUP145C as part of the NUP84 complex is involved in nuclear poly(A)+ RNA and tRNA export. It is also required for normal NPC distribution (probably through interactions with MLP1 and MLP2) and NPC assembly, as well as for normal nuclear envelope organization. UniProt

Subunit Structure
The nuclear pore complex (NPC) constitutes the exclusive means of nucleocytoplasmic transport. NPCs allow the passive diffusion of ions and small molecules and the active, nuclear transport receptor-mediated bidirectional transport of macromolecules such as proteins, RNAs, ribonucleoparticles (RNPs), and ribosomal subunits across the nuclear envelope. The 55-60 MDa NPC is composed of at least 31 different subunits: ASM4, CDC31, GLE1, GLE2, NDC1, NIC96, NSP1, NUP1, NUP2, NUP100, NUP116, NUP120, NUP133, NUP145, NUP157, NUP159, NUP170, NUP188, NUP192, NUP42, NUP49, NUP53, NUP57, NUP60, NUP82, NUP84, NUP85, POM152, POM34, SEC13 and SEH1. Due to its 8-fold rotational symmetry, all subunits are present with 8 copies or multiples thereof. NUP145C is part of the heptameric 0.5 MDa autoassembling NUP84 NPC subcomplex (NUP84, NUP85, NUP120, NUP133, NUP145C, SEC13 and SEH1). NUP145N may bind homopolymeric RNA and interacts through its FG repeats with karyopherins. Interacts with MLP1 and MLP2. UniProt
Contains FG repeats. FG repeats are interaction sites for karyopherins (importins, exportins) and form probably an affinity gradient, guiding the transport proteins unidirectionally with their cargo through the NPC. FG repeat regions are highly flexible and lack ordered secondary structure. The overall conservation of FG repeats regarding exact sequence, spacing, and repeat unit length is limited. FG repeat types and their physico-chemical environment change across the NPC from the nucleoplasmic to the cytoplasmic side: GLFG repeats are especially abundant in NUPs in the central region (lacking a charged environment but are enriched in Ser, Thr, Gln, and Asn).

Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
