linker nucleoporin NIC96, L000001250, YFR002W
Linker nucleoporin component of the nuclear pore complex (NPC); also part of the NPC nuclear basket; contributes to nucleocytoplasmic transport and NPC biogenesis; forms stable associations with three FG-nucleoporins (Nsp1p, Nup57p, and Nup49p)

Dosage Lethality

A genetic interaction is inferred when over expression or increased dosage of one gene causes lethality in a strain that is mutated or deleted for another gene.


The Ran GTPase cycle is required for yeast nuclear pore complex assembly.

Ryan KJ, McCaffery JM, Wente SR

Here, we report the first evidence that the Ran GTPase cycle is required for nuclear pore complex (NPC) assembly. Using a genetic approach, factors required for NPC assembly were identified in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Four mutant complementation groups were characterized that correspond to respective mutations in genes encoding Ran (gsp1), and essential Ran regulatory factors Ran GTPase-activating protein (rna1), Ran guanine ...
