chromatid
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 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.

Chromatid
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.

Sister - Refers to the copy of a chromosomes that results from DNA replication and is still closely linked to its original.

Chromatid
The term which McClung (1900) proposed for each of the four threads making up a chromosome-pair at meiosis (Gk. chroma, colour; for the derivation of '-id', see diploid).

Chromatography a technique used to separate the individual components of a mixture.

chromatid A replicated chromosome joined to its sister chromatid by the centromere; separates and becomes daughter chromosome at anaphase of mitosis or anaphase of the second meiotic division.

A is a single DNA molecule.
Double-stranded chromosomes have two s; normally, each one is identical to the other. The point where the two s are attached is called the centromere.
Chromosome Doubling vs DNA Synthesis ...

The chromatids are initially attached by adhesive proteins along their lengths.
As the chromosomes condense, the region where the chromatids connect shrinks to a narrow area, the centromere.

Condensed 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.

The pairs of s line themselves up on the equator as in mitosis, with sister s orientated toward opposite poles.
Anaphase II
The centromeres divide and the s separate, migrating to opposite poles.

Anaphase II: CHROMATIDS separate and begin moving to the poles.
Telophase II: CLEAVAGE FURROW forms beginning CYTOKINESIS.

Chromosome Structures found in the nucleus of cells composed of DNA and proteins.

During S phase, every chromosome replicates to yield two identical sister chromosomes (called chromatids ) that remain attached at their kinetochores. G 2 , a period of apparent chromosomal inactivity, follows S phase.
