nuclear transport

nuclear transport
Passage of molecules in and out of the nucleus, presumably via nuclear pores. Passage of proteins into the nucleus may depend on possession of a nuclear location sequence containing five consecutive positively-charged residues (PKKKRKV).1. calmidazolium (= Compound R24571)
