Entrez Gene Summary for NUP155 Gene

  • Nucleoporins are proteins that play an important role in the assembly and functioning of the nuclear pore complex (NPC) which regulates the movement of macromolecules across the nuclear envelope (NE). The protein encoded by this gene plays a role in the fusion of NE vesicles and formation of the double membrane NE. The protein may also be involved in cardiac physiology and may be associated with the pathogenesis of atrial fibrillation. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants of this gene. A pseudogene associated with this gene is located on chromosome 6. [provided by RefSeq, May 2013]

GeneCards Summary for NUP155 Gene

NUP155 (Nucleoporin 155kDa) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NUP155 include atrial fibrillation 15 and atrial fibrillation. Among its related pathways are Disease and Cell Cycle, Mitotic. GO annotations related to this gene include transporter activity and structural constituent of nuclear pore.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NUP155 Gene

  • Essential component of nuclear pore complex. Could be essessential for embryogenesis. Nucleoporins may be involved both in binding and translocating proteins during nucleocytoplasmic transport.

Post-translational modifications for NUP155 Gene

  • Disulfide-linked to NUP62. The the inner channel of the NPC has a different redox environment from the cytoplasm and allows the formation of interchain disulfide bonds between some nucleoporins, the significant increase of these linkages upon oxidative stress reduces the permeability of the NPC (By similarity).
  • Phosphorylated. Phosphorylation and dephosphorylation may be important for the function of NUP155 and may play a role in the reversible disassembly of the nuclear pore complex during mitosis (By similarity).
  • Modification sites at PhosphoSitePlus
  • Ubiquitination at Lys297, Lys340, Lys740, Lys824, Lys906, Lys973, Lys1147, and Lys1308
