Structure and function in the nucleus.

Author information

  • 1Department of Biochemistry, University of Dundee, Dundee DD1 4HN, Scotland, UK.


Current evidence suggests that the nucleus has a distinct substructure, albeit one that is dynamic rather than a rigid framework. Viral infection, oncogene expression, and inherited human disorders can each cause profound and specific changes in nuclear organization. This review summarizes recent progress in understanding nuclear organization, highlighting in particular the dynamic aspects of nuclear structure.
