Abstract

Many proteins are concentrated in compartments within the nucleus. Chromatin is also compartmentalized at different nuclear sites. However, nuclear proteins have now been shown to be highly mobile. This review considers the formation and function of nuclear compartments in a situation in which proteins are rapidly moving through the nuclear volume.
