Nucleo-Cytoplasmic Exchange

ID #1836

What causes the nuclear core complex to recognize the NLS sequence intregrated inside of the protein?

The NPC doesn't recognize the NLS. Importin recognizes the NLS and binds to it, and then the NPC allows importin to enter, accompanied by anything associated with the importin molecule, which at this point is your target protein.
