Nuclear pore complex
The nuclear pore complex mediates the selective exchange of components, including RNA, ribosomal proteins, signalling molecules and lipids between the nucleus and the cytoplasm. It is one of the largest protein complexes in the cells. Small molecules diffuse through them while larger molecules are recognised by specific components called nucleoporins to be transported through the pores.
