equatorial plate of first maturation spindle in metakinesis.
equatorial plate from an egg follicle, 28 large chromosomes.
Fig. 30 shows this central arrangement of the chromosomes, forming what is called the equatorial plate.
Figure 29 is the equatorial plate of a metaphase in which the larger component of the unequal pair has been removed in sectioning.
Figure 57 (plate IX) is an equatorial plate from one of these.
Figure 117 shows it more deeply stained than the others in the equatorial plate.
equatorial plate of a dividing cell of follicle of a young egg, showing 20 large chromosomes.
In the metaphase (fig. 182) it is the last to come into the equatorial plate, possibly because of its lack of symmetry.
The equatorial plate often shows both the larger component of the pair and the plasmosome (fig. 71).
Figure 207 is the equatorial plate from a female somatic cell of a young egg-follicle.
equatorial plate n.
The plane located midway between the poles of a dividing cell during miotic metaphase and touching the centromeres and their spindle attachments.
