Reformation of the nuclear envelope at the end of mitosis
Dynamik der Kernhülle ()
Friedrich-Miescher-Laboratorium für biologische Arbeitsgruppen in der MPG, Tübingen
SummaryThe nucleus, the command centre of the eukaryotic cell, is separated from the cytoplasm by the nuclear envelope. How the nuclear envelope is disassembled at the beginning of cell division and how it is reassembled at its end, is largely unknown. The process is a complex interplay of cellular membranes and proteins. Scientists at the Friedrich-Miescher-Laboratory in Tübingen try to understand the underlying mechanisms.
