    We perform two-dimensional Langevin dynamics simulations of electric-field driven polymer translocation through an attractive nanopore. We investigate the effect of the location of the attractive region using different pore patterns. This is found to have an impact on both the translocation time as a function of the chain length and on the polymer entry frequency. We qualitatively compare our results to available experimental data.
