Abstract: Nuclear pore complex is the largest type of macromolecular complex in the cell. In spite of their large size and complex structure NPC undergo complete breakdown and reformation at cell division. NPCs allow the transport of water soluble molecules across the nuclear envelope and can actively conduct 1000 translocations per complex per second. Small particles are able to pass through the nuclear pore complex by passive diffusion but larger particles are also able to pass through the large diameter of the pore but atmost negligible rates. Over the past few years there has been an increasing interest in the pore complex. The current challenge is to understand the effect of magnetic field and permeability on the transport of cargos from NPC using Mathematical model. For this purpose we have used bvp4c tool in Matlab. It is observed that magnetic field enhances the transport of cargos through NPC, which can be used in the cell based diseases.
