The nuclear envelope is the signature of eukaryotes. Sculpted out of the endoplasmic reticulum by evolution, it serves as the protective vessel for the genome and as a highly regulated membrane barrier separating nucleus and cytoplasm. The nuclear envelope combines durability with plasticity - selective traffic with mass transport - spatial enclosure with sophisticated signaling. How this is achieved remains one of the biggest puzzles in cell biology
