  1. The stage of cell division in which the duplicated chromosomes become aligned along the center of the cell, called the equatorial plate or metaphase plate. Metaphase lasts up to an hour, and ends in mitosis and the second division of meiosis when separation of the paired chromosomal strands (called chromatids) begins.
  2. Metaphase is the third of the five phases of biological cell division, or more specifically, the division of what is inside that cell's nucleus. In most instances, this division is mitosis, which is the means by which living cells duplicate their genetic material (DNA, or deoxyribonucleic acid, in all life on Earth) and split into two identical daughter cells.
  3. For more than two decades, Metaphase Technologies has been developing products that advance "The Quality of Light" through engineering and manufacture of uniform diffuse high brightness and ultra brightness LED illuminators for machine vision, military, and specialty lighting applications.
  4. Metaphase is a stage of the cell cycle occurring in both mitosisand meiosiscell division processes. During metaphase in mitosis and meiosis, the chromosomes condense and they become visible and distinguishable during alignment at the center of the dividing cell, to form a metaphase .
  5. Metaphase is a stage in the cell cycle where all the genetic material is condensing into chromosomes. These chromosomes then become visible. During this stage, the nucleus disappears and the chromosomes appear in the cytoplasm of the cell. During this stage in human cells, the chromosomes then become visible under the microscope.
  6. Metaphase cytogenetic abnormalities, plasma cell proliferation index (PCPro), and gain 1q by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) are associated with inferior survival in newly diagnosed multiple myeloma (MM) treated with novel agents; however, their role in risk stratification is unclear in the era of the revised International Staging System (R-ISS).Author: Patrick W.

  7. metaphase a stage of nuclear division in EUKARYOTE cells, occurring once in MITOSIS and twice in MEIOSIS. The main process involved is the organization of CHROMOSOMES at the equator of a spindle, forming a metaphase plate. Each chromosome is divided into two CHROMATIDS, joined at a .
  8. Definition of metaphase: the stage of mitosis and meiosis in which the chromosomes become arranged in the equatorial plane of the spindle First Known Use of metaphase , in the meaning defined above.
