The nucleus of a cell plays a pivotal role in regulating cellular function and providing mechanical integrity. We present a three-dimensional discrete particle model of the nucleus that incorporates the nuclear lamina and chromatin-containing nucleoplasm. The exterior, including the lamina, is modeled by a shell of bonded particles that can exhibit elastic, geometrically nonlinear, and buckling characteristics. The interior, comprising the viscous fluid-like nucleoplasm and the elastic chromatin meshwork, is modeled with particles that undergo viscoelastic interactions. Such a particle framework allows for a realistic representation of the discreteness in nuclear structure and heterogeneity in nuclear properties. In addition, contact dynamics between particles is naturally handled within this framework. This is advantageous when considering the dynamic linkages between intranuclear components (chromatin and the lamina) or between the nucleus and the cytoskeleton. The efficacy of this particle model is compared with different experimental assays, and relevant insights are provided.
