One copy of a duplicated chromosome, formed during the S phase of the cell cycle, that is still joined at the centromere to the other copy; also called sister chromatid.

Subunit of a chromosome after replication and prior to anaphase of meiosis II or mitosis. At anaphase of meiosis II or mitosis when the centromeres divide and the sister chromatids separate each chromatid becomes a chromosome.

A chromatid is one of two identical halves of a replicated chromosome. During cell division, the chromosomes first replicate so that each daughter cell receives a complete set of chromosomes.

One of the strands of a duplicated chromosome joined by a single centromere, only seen during cell division.

Chromatid: One of two copies of a replicated chromosome during mitosis. Together they are called sister chromatids. Each one becomes a daughter chromosome at anaphase of mitosis and at the second meiotic division.

Double-stranded chromosomes have two chromatids; normally, each one is identical to the other. The point where the two chromatids are attached is called the centromere.

Condensed chromatid pairs are held together at the metaphase plate by balanced bipolar forces exerted on the chromosomes by kinetochore microtubules in the mitotic spindle.

Label two chromatids with each letter. This way they can line up the pairs of homologous chromosomes during metaphase I and demonstrate all of the phases of meiosis. This leads right into a lesson on dihybrid crosses and probability.

Chromatid — One of two replications of a chromosome formed prior to cell division and joined together at their centromeres. The centromere is the last portion of a chromosome to replicate during cell division.

Fragile sites -- a non-staining gap of variable width that usually involves both chromatids and is always at exactly the same point on a specific chromosome derived from an individual or kindred.

After the DNA is replicated in the S phase preceding meiosis, the homologous chromosomes (each composed of two chromatids) pair up in Prophase I and then crossing over, ...

In female meiosis the two chromosomes first duplicate to make four chromatids, but then three chromatids are effectively thrown away (as 'polar bodies' in mammals, or non-functional 'megaspores' in plants), ...

It is customary in genetics to use strand for chromatid. It has therefore been used in that sense in some books, where it has also been used for one double-chain (that is, duplex) DNA molecule.

In prophase, the nuclear envelope begins to break down, the nuclear material (or chromatin) condenses into rod-shaped chromosomes consisting of two sister chromatids, and the mitotic spindle begins to assemble.

At metaphase the chromatids move to the equator. The sister chromatids are two DNA molecules formed by DNA replication and are therefore identical.

Just like this is a visible chromosome but it's only made out of one molecule, we don't bother calling it a chromatid at that point because chromatid means a sub part of the chromosome.

Anaphase is preceded by metaphase, by the end of which fully condensed sister chromatids are arranged in pairs, their centromeres lying along a surface known as the metaphase plate.

The replicated chromosomes (sometimes known as chromatids), remain attached to one another at a region known as the centromere.
During mitosis, the attachment between chromatids is broken and one chromatid is segregated to each daughter nuclei.

Centromere the central region of a chromosome which holds the sister chromatids together
