  • Active mechanism locks in the size of cell’s nucleus | Newswire
    manipulated the fission yeast so that the amount of DNA within the nucleus doubled with each cell cycle without the nucleus ever dividing Nuclei with as much as 32 times more DNA than other nuclei maintained the same nucleus to cell ratio a finding that dispelled the theory that it is the amount of DNA and how tightly it is packed that determines the nucleus s size This was perhaps our most surprising finding says Neumann that DNA is not what is measured to determine nuclear size The researchers also found that fission yeast do not measure cell length to lock in this nucleus to cell ratio Rather Neumann and Nurse show that it s what s outside the nucleus not inside it that determines the size of the nucleus This time they confirmed this finding not by doubling the amount of DNA within the nucleus but the number of nuclei within the fission yeast single cell organisms that look like long straight rods In this experiment each cell had four unevenly distributed nuclei During cell growth the volume of each nucleus became directly proportional to the amount of surrounding cytoplasm Particularly the two nuclei at the ends of the rods which were surrounded by relatively more cytoplasm grew faster than the two nuclei between them When Neumann and Nurse repositioned nuclei to areas with relatively more cytoplasm the previously small nuclei grew faster than the others until the proper ratio was achieved The researchers saw the same results when they genetically modified the multi nucleated cells to sprout an arm The nuclei that were close to this junction increased in size since the relative amount of cytoplasm had now increased Taken together these experiments suggest that components within the cytoplasm not DNA content of the nucleus play an important
