The nucleus is in constant communication with each mitochondrion, centriole, Golgi apparatus, ribosome, and endoplasmic reticulum, each of which has its own function in maintaining the overall homeostasis of the cell (see diagram 3): the nucleus contains the nucleolus and houses DNA ; the mitochondrion supplies the cell with energy; centrioles are important for cell division; the Golgi apparatus stores proteins; ribosomes are the sites for protein synthesis; the endoplasmic reticulum expedites the transport of cellular material; the plasma membrane permits materials to move into and out of the cell.
