Nucleus is the most prominent organelle of the cell, as compared to other cell organelles, which accounts for about 10 percent of the cell’s volume. In general, an eukaryotic cell has only one nucleus. The cell nucleus consists of a nuclear membrane (nuclear envelope), nucleoplasm, nucleolus and chromosomes. Nucleoplasm, also known as karyoplasm, is the matrix present inside the nucleus. Nucleus is present in all eukaryotic cells, and the shape of the nucleus is mostly round, it may be oval, disc shaped depending on the type of cell. Animal cell nucleus is a membrane bound organelle. It is surrounded by double membrane. The nucleus communicates with the surrounding cell cytoplasm through the nuclear pores. The following cell diagrams

The nucleus communicates to the cell cytoplasm through the nuclear pores present in the nuclear membrane. The nuclear membrane is continuous with the endoplasmic reticulum. The DNA is responsible for cell division, growth and protein synthesis. The bacterial cell does not contain any nucleus. The bacterial chromosome is not enclosed in a membrane bound nucleus.The bacterial chromosome is circular and located in the cytoplasm. Plant cell nucleus is a double-membrane bound organelle. It controls the activities of the cell and is known as the master mind or the control center of the cell. The plant cell wall has two layers – the outer membrane and the inner membrane, which encloses a tiny space known as perinuclear space. Take a look at the following diagrams.
