Congratulations, Paolo and Sabine (and all coauthors), to your paper in the Journal of Cell Science!
Paolo Macchi and his PhD student Bouchra Khalaf discovered a new and unexpected role of a nuclear pore component, termed Nup358, which appears to be independent of nuclear transport! Nup358 is found in the cytoplasm of nerve cells, where it interacts with ankyrin-G at the axon initial segment.
Well done, Paolo! This is our 20th paper together!
