Nucleus and cytoskeleton

please are cytoskeletons present in the nucleus

The cytoskeleton is a network of filaments and tubules that extends throughout a cell, through the cytoplasm, which is all of the material within a cell EXCEPT for the nucleus. Hope this helps!

if i may ask, then what about the nuclear lamina, is that a thing?

Yes that’s found in the nucleus of eukaryotic cells. It’s a dense, fibrillar network and it is composed of intermediate filaments and membrane associated proteins.
Besides providing mechanical support, the nuclear lamina regulates important cellular events such as DNA replication and cell division, however I’m not sure if this is in the scope of the IMAT.
