Nuclear Localization Sequence: amino acid sequence that directs a protein for transport to the nucleus
: proteins are transported via importin, a transport protein
What is the role of the nuclear localization sequence in a nuclear protein?
a. It binds a transport protein that directs the complex to the nucleus.
b. It is a hydrophobic sequence that enables the protein to enter the nuclear membranes.
c. It aids protein unfolding in order for the protein to thread through nuclear pores.
