Nuclear body is a collective term for several nuclear, extra-nucleolar, non-membrane-bound sub-compartments, including, but not limited to Cajal bodies, Gemini of Cajal bodies (gems), nuclear speckles and PML bodies. Nuclear bodies are visible as distinct spots in the nucleoplasm. They can vary in number and size depending on the cell line and the type of nuclear body.
