The nuclear envelope is a double-membrane structure, which functions to protect the nucleus and the DNA it contains while facilitating the transport of material into and out of the nucleus. The outer layer of the nuclear envelope is continuous with the rough endoplasmic reticulum. In between the two membranes, there is a network of filaments in order to ensure stability. The locations where the two membranes are connected are called pore complexes, and these pores serve as the location of material transport via diffusion or active transport. The inner nuclear membrane is distinct from the endoplasmic reticulum, and its composition allows it to connect to filaments of the nuclear lamina, which plays a role in the organization and stability of the nucleus and is essential in the disassembly and reassembly of the nuclear envelope during mitosis and meiosis.
