I am doing an essay about the nuclear envelope. However, I can't find very good information about the function of this organelle. For example, how does the nuclear envelope protect the nucleus?

    Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "nuclear envelope nucleus" to get these possible sources:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_envelope

    In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
