The nucleolus of a cell is part of the production of ribosomes and contains the cell's RNA, one of the vital building blocks that tells the cell what it is. Ribosomes generate proteins that are needed for the basic funct... More »

The nucleolus works to transcribe ribosomal RNA (rRNA) and it forms incomplete ribosomes by combining proteins and rRNA. Other functions of this structure include transporting molecules, vital substances and ions to ensu... More »

In eukaryotic cells, the primary function of the nucleolus is to assemble ribosomes. In a cell nucleus, this is the biggest component. More »

The nucleolus contains all of the information needed for DNA replication, flow of proteins and RNA, all while controlling the synthesis of protein and cell replication. The nucleolus has several parts: the nuclear envelo... More »

RNA is important to cells because it relays information encoded in DNA to tiny organs within the cell, called ribosomes, which produce protein according to the RNA's instructions. RNA is thus vital to the basic functioni... More »

The nucleolus is chiefly responsible for creating ribosomes, which in turn function as factories for protein synthesis. The nucleolus contains three main organizing regions where transcription and processing of rRNA occu... More »
