Systematic name YKL057C
Gene name NUP120
Aliases RAT2
Feature type ORF, Verified
Coordinates Chr XI:333969..330856
Primary SGDID S000001540

Description of YKL057C: Subunit of the Nup84p subcomplex of the nuclear pore complex (NPC); contributes to nucleocytoplasmic transport and NPC biogenesis and is involved in establishment of a normal nucleocytoplasmic concentration gradient of the GTPase Gsp1p; also plays roles in several processes that may require localization of genes or chromosomes at the nuclear periphery, including double-strand break repair, transcription and chromatin silencing; homologous to human NUP160[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11]
