All creatures of the animal kingdom share one thing: the nuclear membrane. Wrapping the genetic core of the cell, this membrane, together with all the attached proteins, plays a vital role in biological functions. Despite its importance, details of its architecture are still missing. Scientists...
This is a worksheet on cell organelles and their functions. There are 45 questions set up in a matching format. All questions deal with either the structure of the organelle or the functions of the organelles.
'Previously, the nuclear membrane was thought to be mostly just a protective bubble around the nuclear material, with pores acting as channels to transport molecules in and out. But in a study published on October 26 in Nature Cell Biology, a research team led by Irene Chiolo documents how broken strands of a portion of DNA known as heterochromatin are dragged to the nuclear membrane for repair.' Nuclear membrane repairs the 'dark matter' of DNA:
Scientists have found a new function of the nuclear membrane, the envelope that encases and protects DNA in the nucleus of a cell – it fixes potentially fatal breaks in DNA strands. Previously, the nuclear .
