Release of properly processed and assembled mRNPs from the actively transcribing genes, movement of the mRNPs through the interchromatin and interaction with the Nuclear Pore Complexes, leading to cytoplasmic export, are essential steps of eukaryotic gene expression. Here, we review these intranuclear gene expression steps.
