ME Professor Mohammad R. K. Mofrad and ME graduate student Mohaddeseh Peyro, along with two other researchers, have released their findings today in a paper titled "Evolutionarily Conserved Sequence Features Regulate the Formation of the FG Network at the Center of the Nuclear Pore Complex." The paper uncovers "new clues to how a molecular machine inside the cell acts as a gatekeeper, allowing some molecules to enter and exit the nucleus while keeping other molecules out."
