Nuclear membrane dynamics

Curr Opin Cell Biol. 1993 Jun;5(3):387-94. doi: 10.1016/0955-0674(93)90002-8.


Our understanding of nuclear membrane trafficking and protein targeting has increased significantly, due to newly developed assays and tools. We present a conceptual framework for thinking about protein targeting to the inner nuclear membrane, and discuss nuclear envelope assembly in terms of vesicle binding to chromatin, vesicle fusion, structural attachments to the inner membrane, and the mitotic regulation of these attachments.
