BIOL 483 - Intracellular Transport
Most macromolecules expressed in cells must be targeted to specific intracellular locations where they can perform their intended functions. This research tutorial examines the mechanism by which specific proteins undergo regulated transport into and out of the nucleus of eukaryotic cells. Students use classical and molecular genetics to identify genes encoding proteins involved in nuclear transport, and utilize recombinant DNA techniques, biochemistry, and microscopy to characterize the newly identified proteins and their interactions with other nuclear transport factors.
