Individual viruses have evolved strategies for surmounting a formidable barrier in their path to replication in the nucleus - the nuclear envelope. A new study describing the nuclear entry of adenovirus 2 finds that this virus docks at the CAN/Nup214 protein of the nuclear pore, then hijacks histone H1 and specific H1-import receptors to effect a targeted uncoating of its nucleocapsid at the nuclear pore.
