The nucleolus is located within the nucleus and it makes ribosmes. Ribosomes are the sites where the cells assemble proteins according to instructions directions of DNA. The ribosomes move out of the nucleus into the cytoplasm in order to make proteins. These ribosomes attach to the endoplasmic reticulum, called the rough endoplasmic reticulum where they carry out protein synthesis.
