The human TREX-2 complex is stably associated with the nuclear pore basket

Abstract

In eukaryotes mRNA export involves many evolutionarily conserved factors that carry the nascent transcript to the nuclear pore complex (NPC). The THO/TREX complex couples transcription to mRNA export and recruits the mRNA export receptor NXF1 for the transport of mRNP particles to the NPC. The transcription and export complex 2 (TREX-2) was suggested to interact with NXF1 and to shuttle between transcription sites and the NPC. Here, we characterize the dynamics of human TREX-2 and show that it stably associates with the NPC basket. Moreover, the association of TREX-2 with the NPC requires the basket nucleoporins NUP153 and TPR, but is independent of transcription. Differential profiles of mRNA nuclear accumulation reveal that TREX-2 functions similarly to basket nucleoporins, but differently from NXF1. Thus, our results show that TREX-2 is an NPC-associated complex in mammalian cells and suggest that it is involved in putative NPC basket-related functions.
