Abstract

The nucleus is the cellular organelle in which the bulk of the genomic information is stored. From studies using fluorescence microscopy with optical sections of fixed cells, a picture of an organized nuclear structure has emerged. Recently, the application of the green fluorescent protein (GFP) as a fluorescent dye allows the visualization of nuclear dynamics in live cells. Using four-dimensional fluorescence microscopy, the nuclear structures within an interphase nucleus are perceived to have dynamic domains. Structural analyses of a living plant nucleus contribute to our understanding of the genome information process in a particular cell in multicelluar systems.
