The nucleus is enclosed by two membranes with pores called the nuclear envelope . The pores selectively permit substances to enter and leave the nucleus. A somatic cell contains 2 meters of coiled DNA! In a non- dividing cell DNA is called chromatin while in a dividing cell it is referred to by the term chromosomes . The nucleus contains a non-membranous structure called the nucleolus . This is a clump of nucleic acid in the form of RNA responsible for generating rRNA for construction of ribosomes. Understandably, the nucleus tend to be larger in cells that make more protein. Nucleus 27 Monday, May 23, 2011

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
