The nucleus is a place of great activity - DNA strands being wrapped and unwrapped around the histone complexes; RNA polymerases and transcription factors dutifully transcribing genes to make mRNA; mRNA diligently being processed and transported outside the nucleus, while all along enzymes constantly patrol the processes. The nucleus really is a jungle of busy, hustling biomolecules, and here I represent a miniscule of what really goes on in there. DNA strands in black, RNA strands in pink, histone complexes in black, RNA polymerase II and mRNA processing proteins in blue, nuclear membrane in purple.
