Other Examples of Cell Nuclei
Besides these two simple examples of cell nuclei, there are countless
variations to these two general schemes in nature. Some cells merge
together, creating large cells with multiple cell nuclei in each cell. Many
organism have cells with more than one nucleus, including humans.
cells are multi-nucleated. Other organisms, like
, exist with most or all of their cells being multi-nucleated.
In some organisms, the process of cell division does not include the
breakdown of the nuclear envelope. Instead,
through the cell nucleus and directly manipulate the chromosomes and
work to divide the nucleus. Evolutionarily, it is assumed that early
organisms that developed nuclei had clear advantages over those
without. Over the course of millennia, different strategies for managing
and maintaining the cell nucleus have evolved. While the nucleus may
seem like a more advanced form of life, don’t forget that
and other single-celled life forms, are still some of the
