Come together: Nucleolus forms via combination of active and passive processes

https://youtu.be/DxYDy1fQlV8?rel=0 Movie caption: Researchers at Princeton studied the temperature dependence of the formation of the nucleolus, a cellular organelle. The movie shows the nuclei of intact fly cells as they are subjected to temperature changes in the surrounding fluid. As the temperature is shifted from low to high, the spontaneously assembled proteins dissolve, as can … Continue reading Come together: Nucleolus forms via combination of active and passive processes
