|Title:||Peering into the Cell Nucleus|
The human cell nucleus contains a large number of distinct compartments that contribute to a cell's function, such as the speckles that contain RNA-processing proteins (red), which lie next to chromosomes (blue). These speckles disassemble and reassemble during cell division (center cell).
