The antibody was affinity-purified from rabbit antiserum by affinity-chromatography using epitope-specific immunogen and the purity is > 95% (by SDS-PAGE).
The nuclear pore complex (NPC) is a protein assembly localized at the nuclear rim and mediates macromolecular transport between the nucleus and the cytoplasm. One protein in this assembly is the nucleoporin (NUP)-155, which is localized symmetrically to both the nucleoplasmic and cytoplasmic faces of the NPC. NUP155 has been reported to interact with both NUP35 and the mRNA export factor Gle1, but the functions of these interactions are still unknown. NUP155 has also been shown to be required for NPC assembly and nuclear envelope (NE) membrane fusion. NUP155 is recruited late in NE formation, suggesting that NUP155 defines an essential late step in NE assembly. NUP155 has recently been identified as an HIV dependency factor (HDF), suggesting that NUP155 may be an important drug target in HIV treatment. At least two isoforms of NUP155 are known to exist.
