Cardiovascular disease is a pressing health problem with significant global health, societal, and financial burdens. Understanding the molecular basis of polygenic cardiac pathology is thus essential to devising novel approaches for management and treatment. Recent identification of uncharacterized regulatory functions for a class of nuclear envelope proteins called nucleoporins offers the opportunity to understand novel putative mechanisms of cardiac disease development and progression. Consistent reports of nucleoporin deregulation associated with ischemic and dilated cardiomyopathies, arrhythmias and valvular disorders suggests that nucleoporin impairment may be a significant but understudied variable in cardiopathologic disorders. This review discusses and converges existing literature regarding nuclear pore complex proteins and their association with cardiac pathologies, and proposes a role for nucleoporins as facilitators of cardiac disease.
