The nuclear membrane
The Nuclear Membrane or also called the Nuclear Envelope is a barrier that separates the nucleus from the cytoplasm in Eukaryotic cells. The membrane is double layered. There is a lot of protein within the membrane. The bilayer is made up of lipids and then is covered in genetic material in eukaryotic cells. The two layers of the bilayer are called the inner and outer layer. In between the inner and outer layer there is space that is called the perinulear space. Also there are small wholes within the membrane which are known as nuclear pores.
