What is the function of cell nuclei?

Eukaryotic cells generally do not have cell nuclei, although there are also binucleate and multinucleate cells. The nucleus is the most important part of the cell, because nuclei controls various function of metabolic activities.

Cell nuclei or nucleus functions are:

  1. The function of the nucleus is an integral and essential part of eukaryotic cells and contains a hereditary material called chromatin, a DNA-protein complex. The core part of Chromatin has all the genetic information needed for the growth and development function of an organism, its reproduction, metabolism, and behavior.
  2. Function the cell nucleus (nuclei) controls cell metabolism and other activities through the formation of RNA (mRNA, rRNA, tRNA) which control the synthesis of certain types of enzymes. With the help of RNA, the function of the nucleus directs the synthesis of specific structural proteins and other chemicals needed for cell growth and cells maintenance.
  3. Ribosomes are formed in the nucleoli of the nuclei; nucleus.
  4. Nucleus function directs cell differentiation by allowing certain genes to operate according to their function.
