The Cell Nucleus: Structure and Main Functions
The nucleus is the main repository of genetic information in the eukaryotic cells and also the place where the primary genomic functions, i.e., DNA replication, transcription and RNA splicing and processing, are carried out. The numerous descriptive electron microscope and confocal microscope studies, together with the development of immunocytochemical methods and the DNA recombinant technologies has fueled a renaissance in the quest to understand the molecular organization of the cell nucleus.1
