Compare with Definitions

Karyokinesis

Division of a cell nucleus during mitosis.
Mar 10, 2019

Mitosis

In cell biology, mitosis () is a part of the cell cycle in which replicated chromosomes are separated into two new nuclei. Cell division gives rise to genetically identical cells in which the total number of chromosomes is maintained.

Karyokinesis

See mitosis.

Mitosis

A type of cell division that results in two daughter cells each having the same number and kind of chromosomes as the parent nucleus, typical of ordinary tissue growth

Mitosis

The process in cell division by which the nucleus divides, typically consisting of four stages, prophase, metaphase, anaphase, and telophase, and normally resulting in two new nuclei, each of which contains a complete copy of the parental chromosomes.Also called karyokinesis.

Karyokinesis

The indirect division of cells in which, prior to division of the cell protoplasm, complicated changes take place in the nucleus, attended with movement of the nuclear fibrils; - opposed to karyostenosis. The nucleus becomes enlarged and convoluted, and finally the threads are separated into two groups which ultimately become disconnected and constitute the daughter nuclei. Called also mitosis. See Cell development, under Cell.

Mitosis

The entire process of cell division including division of the nucleus and the cytoplasm.
Mar 10, 2019

Karyokinesis

The changes that occur in the nucleus of a cell, especially movements of the chromosomes, in the process of cell division.
Mar 10, 2019

Mitosis

(cytology) The division of a cell nucleus in which the genome is copied and separated into two identical halves. It is normally followed by cell division.
Mar 10, 2019

Karyokinesis

Organic process consisting of the division of the nucleus of a cell during mitosis or meiosis

Mitosis

See Karyokinesis.

Mitosis

Cell division in which the nucleus divides into nuclei containing the same number of chromosomes
