The cell nucleus is an intricate organelle that coordinates multiple activities that are associated with DNA replication and gene expression. In all eukaryotes, it stores the genetic information and the machineries that control the production of mature and export-competent messenger ribonucleoproteins (mRNPs), a multistep process that is regulated in a spatial and temporal manner. Recent studies suggest that post-translational modifications play a part in coordinating the co-transcriptional assembly, remodelling and export of mRNP complexes through nuclear pores, adding a new level of regulation to the process of gene expression.
