Each one is simply a specially contractile continuation of the protoplasm of the cell-body.
Thus, by this first ergonomy, the nucleus became the vehicle of heredity and the cell-body the organ of adaptation.
Chromosomes at the poles forming the Diaster, beginning splitting of the cell-body.
At the point where they become continuous with the cell-body there is usually a deeply staining “basal granule.”
The division of the cell-body is completed midway between the two daughter-nuclei.
The cytoplasm of the cell-body, on the other hand, serves the purposes of adaptation and nutrition.
Hence many cytologists regard the centrosoma as a secondary product of differentiation in the cell-body, not the nucleus.
As the chromosomes go toward the poles the cell-body begins to constrict at the equator.
cell body n.
The part of a neuron containing the nucleus but not incorporating the axon and dendrites. Also called soma.
