1994; Ivanova and Rost, 1998; den Boer and Murray, 2000). Cells in the G1 phase have several options. In the presence of sufficient stimuli they can commit to further cell division and progress into the S phase. They may pause in their progress through the cell cycle in response to environmental factors, as during winter dormancy, and resume dividing at a later time. This specialized resting, or dormant, state is often called the Go phase (G-zero phase). , 1999). , 2001). The single nucleus then becomes polyploid (endopolyploidy, or endoploidy).

The nucleus is bounded by a pair of membranes called the nuclear envelope, with a perinuclear space between them (Figs. , 2004). In various places the outer membrane of the envelope is continuous with the endoplasmic reticulum, so that the perinuclear space is continuous with the lumen of the endoplasmic reticulum. The nuclear envelope is considered a specialized, locally differentiated portion of the endoplasmic reticulum. 6 Nuclear envelope (ne) in profi le (A) and from the surface (B, central part) showing pores (po).
