The Nucleus and its Functional Domains

ID #2024

why is it that the nucleolus dissapears during mitosis? where do all the machinery and enzymes go to?

When the NOR separate and each chromosome packs into a mitotic chromosome, all of the other molecules go their own separate way for the time being. As we'll see later in the semester, the nucleus itself is disassembled during M-phase, so those molecules are just in the cytoplasm with everything else.
