Nucleoporin 188kDa, also known as NUP188, is a human gene.[1][2]

Function[edit]

Transport of macromolecules between the cytoplasm and nucleus occurs through nuclear pore complexes (NPCs) embedded in the nuclear envelope. NPCs are composed of subcomplexes, and NUP188 is part of one such subcomplex.[1]
