Abstract

The life of the nucleolus has proven to be more colorful and multifaceted than had been envisioned a decade ago. A large number of proteins found in this subnuclear compartment have no identifiable tie either to the ribosome biosynthetic pathway or to the other newly established activities occurring within the nucleolus. The questions of how and why these proteins end up in this subnuclear compartment remain unanswered and are the focus of intense current interest. This review discusses our thoughts on the discovery of nonribosomal proteins in the nucleolus.
