Sieve tube loses its nucleus at maturity becauseits mainfunction is to transport sugars and other important molecules necessary for plants. It would thus require a lot of space to manage the transport. It is still alive due to companion cell. They are formed from the same mother cells as sieve tubes and these supply the sieve tubes with ATP and other energy rich molecules require for survival.
