Reporting in this issue of Developmental Cell, Linder et al. (2017) and Martino et al. (2017) reveal in highly complementary studies that Plk1 is recruited to the nuclear pore complex upon mitotic entry, where it acts with Cdk1 to hyperphosphorylate nucleoporin interfaces to promote NPC disassembly and nuclear envelope breakdown.
