The nucleolus, a large nuclear domain, is the ribosome factory of the cells. Ribosomal RNAs are synthesized, processed and assembled with ribosomal proteins in the nucleolus, and the ribosome subunits are then transported to the cytoplasm. In this review, the structural organization of the nucleolus and the dynamics of the nucleolar proteins are discussed in an attempt to link both information. By electron microscopy, three main nucleolar components corresponding to different steps of ribosome… Expand
Nucleolus: the ribosome factory.
TLDR
This review is focused on the recent progress in knowledge of how to correlate the known biochemical processes taking place in the nucleolus with nucleolar structures observed in the microscope. Expand
The Plant Nucleolus
TLDR
The evolution of the nucleolus through interphase and mitosis and its role in cell cycle regulation, as well as the proteinaceous factors which participate in rDNA transcription, pre‐rRNA processing and/or ribosome assembly, are revised. Expand
Review Nucleolus: The ribosome factory
TLDR
This review is focused on how to correlate the known biochemical processes taking place in thenucleolus with nucleolar structures observed in themicroscope with detailed enough information to allow for an in situ description of the organization and regulation of nucleolar processes at the molecular level in the years to come. Expand
The dynamics and mechanisms of nucleolar reorganization during mitosis
TLDR
This review summarizes the current data on the dynamics and mechanisms of the disassembly and reassembly of the nucleolus during mitosis and gives particular attention to the information obtained by analysis of the dynamics of theucleolus in living cells and by modeling of the premature assembly of the nucleusolus under various experimental conditions. Expand
Nucleolar targeting: the hub of the matter
TLDR
The current understanding of nucleolar targeting is discussed, the types of sequence that control the localization of a protein to the nucleolus are explored, and it is speculated that certain subsets of nucle polar proteins might act as hub proteins that are able to bind to multiple protein targets. Expand
New insights into nucleolar architecture and activity.
TLDR
Current understanding of how the biochemical processes of ribosome biosynthesis relate to an observable nucleolar structure is discussed, and emerging evidence points to other, unconventional roles for the nucleolus, particularly in the biogenesis of other RNA-containing cellular machinery, and in stress sensing and the control of cellular activity.

concept co cept Nucleolar targeting : the hub of the matter
The nucleolus is a dynamic structure that has roles in various processes, from ribosome biogenesis to regulation of the cell cycle and the cellular stress response. Such functions are frequentlyExpand
The traffic of proteins between nucleolar organizer regions and prenucleolar bodies governs the assembly of the nucleolus at exit of mitosis
The building of nuclear bodies after mitosis is a coordinated event crucial for nuclear organization and function. The nucleolus is assembled during early G1 phase. Here, two periods (early G1a andExpand
The traffic of proteins between nucleolar organizer regions and prenucleolar bodies governs the assembly of the nucleolus at exit of mitosis.
TLDR
The fact that assembly of GC and/or its interaction with DFC in early G1a depends on shuttling between PNBs and NORs in a manner dependent on Cajal body assembly is discussed. Expand
Transcription-dependent rearrangements of actin and nuclear myosin I in the nucleolus
TLDR
The data support the involvement of actin and NMI in rDNA transcription and point out to other functions of these proteins in the nucleolus, such as rRNA maturation and maintenance of nucleolar architecture. Expand

Nucleolar Components Involved in Ribosome Biogenesis Cycle between the Nucleolus and Nucleoplasm in Interphase Cells
TLDR
It is suggested that the rapid exchange of nucleolar components between the nucleolus and nucleoplasm may represent a new level of regulation for rRNA synthesis. Expand
Nucleolar proteome dynamics
TLDR
The data establish a quantitative proteomic approach for the temporal characterization of protein flux through cellular organelles and demonstrate that the nucleolar proteome changes significantly over time in response to changes in cellular growth conditions. Expand
Nucleolar Assembly of the Rrna Processing Machinery in Living Cells
TLDR
It is proposed that the temporal order of PNB assembly and disassembly controls nucleolar delivery of these proteins, and that accumulation of processing complexes in the nucleolus is driven by pre-rRNA concentration. Expand
The moving parts of the nucleolus
TLDR
The cell nucleolus is the subnuclear body in which ribosomal subunits are assembled, and it is also the location of several processes not related to ribosome biogenesis, including regulation of tumor suppressor and oncogene activities, signal recognition particle assembly, modification of small RNAs, control of aging, and modulating telomerase function.

TLDR
Nucleoli are nuclear territories devoted to ribosome biogenesis, which are larger in cancer cells than in normal cells and have been found directed against each of the characterized nucleolar proteins. Expand

The plurifunctional nucleolus concept has a strong footing in contemporary data and adds a new perspective to the current picture of the spatial-functional design of the cell nucleus. Expand

Dynamics and compartmentation of the nucleolar processing machinery.
TLDR
The 5,6-dichloro-1-beta-D-ribofuranosylbenzimidazole (DRB) provokes dispersion of rDNA clusters and it is demonstrated that DRB induces disconnection of the late rRNA processing proteins from the transcription sites, suggesting an energy-dependent process. Expand

TLDR
It is demonstrated that SRP RNA concentrates in an intranucleolar location other than the classical stations of ribosome biosynthesis, suggesting that there may be nucleolar regions that are specialized for other functions. Expand
Initiation of nucleolar assembly is independent of RNA polymerase I transcription.
TLDR
It is proposed that nucleolar formation at the end of mitosis results from direct recruitment of processing factors and pre-rRNAs to UBF-associated NORs before or at the onset of rDNA transcription, followed by fusion of prepackaged prenucleolar bodies into the nucleolus. Expand
