|Other Names||Nuclear pore complex protein Nup50, 50 kDa nucleoporin, Nuclear pore-associated protein 60 kDa-like, Nucleoporin Nup50, NUP50, NPAP60L|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP1913a was selected from the Center region of human NUP50. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||The synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml deionized water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Component of the nuclear pore complex that has a direct role in nuclear protein import. Actively displaces NLSs from importin-alpha, and facilitates disassembly of the importin- alpha:beta-cargo complex and importin recycling. Interacts with multiple transport receptor proteins including CDKN1B. This interaction is required for correct intracellular transport and degradation of CDKN1B.|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus, nuclear pore complex. Nucleus membrane; Peripheral membrane protein; Nucleoplasmic side. Note=Localizes to the nucleoplasmic fibrils of the nuclear pore complex (By similarity). Dissociates from the NPC structure early during prophase of mitosis. Associates to the newly formed nuclear membrane during telophase.|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitous. Highest levels in testis, peripheral blood leukocytes and fetal liver|

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. NUP50 is a member of the FG-repeat containing nucleoporins that functions as a soluble cofactor in importin-alpha:beta-mediated nuclear protein import. NUP50 may serve as a binding site on the nuclear side of the pore complex for export receptor-cargo complexes. It interacts with multiple transport receptor proteins including p27Kip1. This interaction is required for correct intracellular transport and degradation of p27Kip1.
