BME 418, Quantitative Cell Biology Alan J. Hunt Nucleus. With only a few exceptions (mitochondria, chloroplasts) protein manufacture starts in the nucleus. We won't dwell on details of transcription and translation since that's more the domain of a biochemistry or Molecular Bio. Course. Major components of the nucleus: - inner, outer membrane - lamina, intermediate filaments - nuclear pores - contains genetic material + transcription machinery The intermembrane space is contiguous with the lumen of the ER, and a web-like nuclear lamina is found just inside of the inner membrane. The nuclear lamina is made up of intermediate filaments.
