ⓘ Nucleoporin 153

Nucleoporin 153 is a protein which in humans is encoded by the NUP153 gene. It is an essential component of the basket of nuclear pore complexes in vertebrates, and required for the anchoring of NPCs. It also acts as the docking site of an importing karyopherin. On the cytoplasmic side of the NPC, Nup358 fulfills an analogous role.
