Every time a cell divides, the protective envelope that surrounds the nucleus is broken down and rebuilt into two new ones. Scientists at the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB) in Barcelona, the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg and the Pasteur Institute in Paris have discovered a protein that plays a crucial role in the assembly and structure of the nucleus. Their work appears in the September 5 issue of Current Biology.
The envelope acts as a barrier between the outer cell compartment,(the cytoplasm) and the DNA stored in the cell nucleus. It regulates which molecules are allowed to pass back and forth between the two compartments. Most of this traffic passes through basket-shaped passageways called nuclear pores, which consist of intricately-woven proteins.
