Eukaryotic cell nucleus. Artwork of the internal structure and contents of the nucleus of a eukaryotic cell. The nucleus has been sectioned in half, with the lower half showing the nuclear membrane (orange) and its nuclear pores (pink). Ribosomes (yellow) are on the membrane's outer surface, and RNA (white) is emerging through the pores. Inside the cell are coiled strands of DNA (white), as well as nucleoplasm (green) and the nucleolus (blue, upper centre). The genetic material DNA and RNA provide the biochemical instructions for producing proteins (via the ribosomes), forming the basis of nearly all life on Earth.
