Entrez Gene Summary for NUP62 Gene

  • The nuclear pore complex is a massive structure that extends across the nuclear envelope, forming a gateway that regulates the flow of macromolecules between the nucleus and the cytoplasm. Nucleoporins are the main components of the nuclear pore complex in eukaryotic cells. The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the FG-repeat containing nucleoporins and is localized to the nuclear pore central plug. This protein associates with the importin alpha/beta complex which is involved in the import of proteins containing nuclear localization signals. Multiple transcript variants of this gene encode a single protein isoform. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

  • O-glycosylated. Contains about 10 N-acetylglucosamine side chain sites predicted for the entire protein, amongst which only one in the C-terminal
  • 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.
  • Modification sites at PhosphoSitePlus
  • Ubiquitination at Lys371 and Lys435
  • Glycosylation at Thr373 and Ser468

  • Infantile striatonigral degeneration (SNDI) [MIM:271930]: Neurological disorder characterized by symmetrical degeneration of the caudate nucleus, putamen, and occasionally the globus pallidus, with little involvement of the rest of the brain. The clinical features include developmental regression, choreoathetosis, dystonia, spasticity, dysphagia, failure to thrive, nystagmus, optic atrophy, and mental retardation. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:16786527}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
