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 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 »

The best analogy for the nucleolus in eukaryotic cells is a factory that makes tools that are used to build other resources. The primary function of the nucleolus is to combine and construct ribosomes. The primary functi... 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 »

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 »
