Abstract:The process of nucleocytoplasmic exchange of various macromolecules and metabolites between the nuclear and cytoplasmic compartment is crucial for cell function and survival. It is also closely involved with several pathogeneses including cancer and viral infections. Here, we will discuss the current understanding of the classical nuclear import pathway and the factors that are essential for this process.

- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
