These nuclei are very large, with absence of chromosome threads and with diffuse nucleoplasm, except for a number of prominent chromocenters thought to be the pericentromeric heterochromatin.
Initially, the nucleoli are scattered throughout the nucleoplasm, but soon they take a more peripheral location, close to the nuclear envelope (Fig.
All these together form a tripartite network in the nucleoplasm and provide topological surfaces for complex processes of DNA replication and RNA transcription and processing of RNA [19].
10) Also proteomic analyses of the proteins in the nucleolus, that dense portion of the nucleoplasm where ribosomal RNAs are transcribed and ribosome biogenesis occurs, have also demonstrated that these proteins are derived from eubacterial and archaeal ancestors.
According to Jamieson (1981), the nuclear condensation is accompanied by the nucleoplasm elimination within the vesicles.

Previous studies have shown that many nucleolar components involved in ribosome biogenesis exchange rapidly between nucleolus and nucleoplasm.
NC are defined as invaginations of the nuclear envelope (NE) that traverse the nucleoplasm, thus forming a ring-like nucleus.
