Which Joe gave his name to ‘sloppy joes’? We look at five interesting sandwiches and their lexical origins.
A cell formed by the division or budding of another.
- ‘Normally, stem in the Arabidopsis epidermis will divide asymmetrically into a smaller, daughter cell, which eventually form stomata, and a larger daughter cell.’
- ‘As cells divide it is a necessity that the DNA be copied, in such a way that each daughter cell acquires the same amount of genetic material.’
- ‘Whenever an infected cell divides, the episome makes a copy of itself, and each daughter cell receives one.’
- ‘Karmellae are asymmetrically segregated at mitosis, such that the mother cell retains karmellae membranes and the daughter cell inherits an unelaborated ER structure.’
- ‘In one type of strategy the stem cell divides asymmetrically, so that one daughter remains a stem cell while the other daughter cell undergoes cell differentiation.’
- ‘These stem cells divide asymmetrically to form a new germline stem cell and a differentiated daughter cell, the cystoblast (cb).’
- ‘We assume that every mtDNA molecule has an equal chance of being partitioned to either daughter cell, regardless of where in the cell it is physically located.’
- ‘Since there is no fusion of two different cells, the daughter cells produced by asexual reproduction are genetically identical to the parent cell.’
- ‘The initial asymmetric division orientates the smaller daughter cell towards the apex of the leaf causing a uniform pattern of complexes to emerge, giving rise to the files of stomata typical of monocotyledonous leaves.’
- ‘Separation of the chromatids at mitosis produced one daughter cell homozygous for the chromosome arm carrying an EMS-induced mutation.’
- ‘Cell division and re-growth of daughter cells to the initial mother cell size results in a biomass increase of a factor of two.’
- ‘True stem cells are self-renewing during the lifetime of an organism and they undergo asymmetric division, so that one daughter cell maintains the stem-cell lineage while the other daughter cell matures into a specialized cell type.’
- ‘If recombination and pairing resulted in a daughter cell identical to its mother cell, then another nine possible granddaughter cells could be created in the next round of recombination.’
- ‘In the absence of mutation, homoplasmic cells produce only homoplasmic daughter cells after mitotic cell divisions.’
- ‘Meiosis is a specialized cell division producing four daughter cells, each containing a haploid genome complement.’
- ‘The presence of pheromone might induce cells to adopt a bipolar budding pattern similar to diploid cells in which daughter cells choose distal sites at a high frequency.’
- ‘Normally, when a stem cell divides, one daughter cell differentiates and leaves the niche, while another remains behind to re-populate the niche.’
- ‘In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, migration of the mother cell nucleus to the bud neck before mitosis ensures that the daughter cell will contain one of the two sister nuclei.’
- ‘The correct segregation of sister chromatids to daughter cells during mitosis depends on the formation of a bipolar spindle composed primarily of microtubules (MTs).’
- ‘The daughter cell that receives Numb protein, the pIIb cell, ultimately produces the neuron and thecogen cell, whereas the pIIa cell is the precursor to the external support cells.’
