Solving a 3D jigsaw with 1000 pieces - Structure and assembly of the nuclear pore complex

Dr Martin BECK
EMBL, Heidelberg, Germany

Friday, October 26th 2018 - 10 a.m. - Auditorium, IGBMC
Hosted by I. Sumara team

Nuclear pore complexes are fundamental components of all eukaryotic cells. They mediate nucleocytoplasmic exchange, regulate gene expression and are of high human health relevance. Elucidating their 110 MDa structure imposes a formidable challenge and requires in situ structural biology approaches. How cells address this challenge and assemble ~1000 building blocks in a faithful manner remains enigmatic. I will discuss our efforts to determine the structure of the nuclear pore complex. I will further present novel insights into the assembly mechnism of nuclear pores that are relevant to oogenesis and early embryonic development.
