This results in a phragmoplast complex that directs cell plate deposition to simultaneously cleave the tetrad of spores.
A distinct phragmoplast develops in the interzonal region in telophase I but no cell plate develops and cytokinesis is simultaneous.
1966), is equivocal as to cell plate deposition after first division.
Whether it is also cell disturbance that accounts for longer time periods to obtain steady state conditions when the cell plates are moved was not obvious.
Cell plates were either measured by TEER in-situ in an incubator or after transference to a biological safety cabinet.
Consideration therefore needs to be given to the accuracy of those resistance measurements either taken immediately after moving cell plates from the incubator or by a change of medium prior to addition of agents that alter resistance.
According to Hull/finmac, this complete system optimizes the production of fuel cell plates.
It is a critical component with uses as diverse as fuel cell plates, stealth bombers, computer circuitry, sporting goods, electrodes, atomic absorption rods for reactor control, brake linings, electric motor brushes and a myriad of other applications.
The advanced unloading system removes cell plates and holds them flat under vacuum after they leave the mold area to improve dimensional stability.
