Abstract

Nuclear targeting sequences are essential for the transport of proteins into the nucleus. The seven-amino-acid nuclear targeting sequence of the SV40 large T antigen has been regarded as the model; however, many nuclear targeting sequences appear to be more complex. We suggest in this review that, despite this diversity, a consensus bipartite motif can be identified.
