All things considered, this chromatin is probably the most remarkable body connected with organic life.
While these changes are going on in the chromatin the Amphiaster forms.
The chromatin always gives the reaction of an acid, while protoplasm is basic; besides that it seems to be a centre of oxidation.
The first indication of the cell division is shown by the chromatin fibres.
We must therefore distinguish in the cell between “young” and “adult” chromatin.
The process by which the chromatin is subdivided is so curious as to be worth a brief description.
This we can only believe to be the result of a differentiation in their chromatin material.
Figure 137 is an exceptional anaphase in which the heterochromosome elements are not mingled with the polar masses of chromatin.
The nucleus soon enlarges (fig. 80) and a large dense body (n) appears which stains like chromatin with various staining media.
Spermatids containing both the chromatin nucleolus (n) and the odd chromosome (x), a the acrosome.
chromatin chro·ma·tin (krō'mə-tĭn)
A complex of nucleic acids and proteins in the cell nucleus that stains readily with basic dyes and condenses to form chromosomes during cell division.
