Cytokinesis

Science / Biology / Cytokinesis: The division of the cytoplasm during cell division.

Telophase

Science / Biology / Telophase: The final stage of mitosis in which the chromosomes migrate to opposite poles, a new nuclear envelope forms, and the chromosomes uncoil. The last phase of nuclear division in eukaryotes when the segre MORE

Separation

Science / Biology / Separation: Splitting of the cytoplasm by cytokinesis (= cytokinesis). MORE

Cell Plate

Science / Biology / Cell Plate: In plants, a membrane-bound space produced during cytokinesis by the vesicles of the Golgi apparatus. The cell plate fuses with the plasma membrane, dividing the cell into two compartments. MORE

Cleavage Furrow

Science / Biology / Cleavage Furrow: A constriction of the cell membrane at the equator of the cell that marks the beginning of cytokinesis in animal cells. The cell divides as the furrow deepens. MORE
