Nucleoporin 85 (Nup85) is a protein that in humans is encoded by the NUP85 gene.[1][2]

Bidirectional 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 NUP85 is part of one such subcomplex, Nup107-160.[2]

Model organisms[edit]

Model organisms have been used in the study of NUP85 function. A conditional knockout mouse line called Nup85tm1a(KOMP)Wtsi was generated at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute.[3] Male and female animals underwent a standardized phenotypic screen[4] to determine the effects of deletion.[5][6][7][8] Additional screens performed: - In-depth immunological phenotyping[9]
