    ..Further genetic analysis revealed that one of the nucleoporin genes, nup40, and another gene, SPCC1322.06, encoding a putative importin-beta/Cse1p superfamily protein may have a spindle checkpoint function. ..

    ..genes, but in fission yeast there are two: the previously characterized cut15 and the more recently identified imp1. Like other importin-alpha family members, Imp1p supports nuclear protein import in vitro...

    ..Although full-length Nup1p or Nup153 does not complement Nup124p, the functionality of their conserved domains with reference to Tf1 activity suggests that these three proteins evolved from a common ancestor. ..
