Nuclear pore complex protein Nup205 also known as nucleoporin 205kDa is a protein that in humans is encoded by the NUP205 gene.[1][2][3]


Transport of macromolecules between the cytoplasm and nucleus occurs through nuclear pore complexes (NPCs) embedded in the nuclear envelope. NPC's are composed of subcomplexes, and NUP205 is part of one such subcomplex.[1]
