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]
