cell cycleZellzyklus (ger.)

  • 1) The cyclic changes (actual or supposed) between certain types of cell form (obs. rare). (OED 2012)

    The only fixed units are, 1° cells; 2° the whole series of generations of cells from a single ovum,—a cell-cycle

    Cell-cycle,—of encysted, ciliated, and amoeboid phases

    Geddes, P. & Thomson, J.A. (1890). The Evolution of Sex: 121.

  • 2) The sequence of events by which a eukaryotic cell replicates itself and divides in two. (OED 2012)

    I have never observed in Crepidula a rotation of the nuclei, independent of the spindles, at so late a stage in the cell cycle.

    the longitudinal split of the thread which takes place in the spirem stage only becomes completed and effective during the second maiotic (homotype) division. Consequently these two divisions with their respective prophases form a stage in the cell cycle of plants and animals which differs entirely from the divisional sequence before and after it.

    it was shown by Rabl and Boveri that there is a continuity (or persistent individuality) of the chromosomes from one cell cycle to the next.

    the duration of the cell cycle is provisionally taken to be 30 hours
