Comments RNA motion within the nucleus is rapid and non-directional. Several methodological approaches involving fluorescently labeled, microinjected, engineered or endogenous RNAs demonstrate that ribosomal RNAs as well as polyA-RNAs move freely in a non-directional manner with a diffusion coefficient of 0.03–0.1 µm^2 s-1 within the nucleus
