The nuclear pore complex (NPC) is a supra-molecular assembly that mediates substance and information flow across the nuclear envelope (NE). Due to its extraordinary size and complexity, the NPC remains one of the most challenging tasks in structural elucidation at atomic resolution. Recent breakthroughs in cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) reconstruction, Machine Learning empowered structure prediction and biochemical reconstitution have combined to yield molecular models of the NPC at unprecedented accuracy. Furthermore, in cellulo cryo-electron tomography (cryo-ET) structures reveal substantial structural dynamics of the NPC. These advances shed light on the organizational principles and functions of the NPC. Copyright © 2022 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
