Definition proposition for cleavage arrested development
submitted by Delph almost 8 years ago
[Term] id: ECO:0000298 name: cleavage-arrested development def: "A type of experimental phenotypic evidence in the embryos of certain species, where development proceeds although cytokinesis is blocked." [ECO:MCC]<br> comment: In the embryos of some organisms, inhibition of cytokinesis does not block the cell cycle, nor the unfolding of the developmental program. This allows to freeze the embryo morphology, and to analyze the developmental fate of each cell present at the time of cleavage arrest. <br> is_a: ECO:0000059 ! experimental phenotypic evidence
