nuclear pores

nuclear pores
small octagonal openings in the nuclear envelope at sites where the two nuclear membranes are in contact and through which transport between the nucleus and the cytoplasm occurs; the pore and the associated structures embedded in its rim form the nuclear pore complex. See also Plate 11.
