  • adj. Same as homotypal.

from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia

  • Pertaining to or of the nature of a homotype; of the same type; symmetrical with or corresponding to something else on the opposite part of the same axis. Thus, the right hand is homotypic of the left; the right and left eyes are homotypic.
  • In cytology, relating to the second nuclear division after mitapsis: so called because it is very similar to ordinary mitosis.

Examples

  • Right and left organs are homotypic, metameric organs are homodynamic; homonomy is the relation exemplified by fin-rays or fingers, which are arranged with reference to

    Form and Function A Contribution to the History of Animal Morphology

  • Under the first comes the law of the existence of certain fundamentally distinct structural types, which are distinguished from one another by their ground-form, by the number of organ-systems, and by the number of homotypic organs they possess, but principally by the relative position of the organs to one another (principle of connections).

  • Antimeres (homotypic parts, _i. e._, halves or rays); (4) Metameres

    Form and Function A Contribution to the History of Animal Morphology

  • A second homotypic division takes place in which each chromosome splits into two as in somatic divisions, and thus we have 4 gametes with 7 chromosomes each.

    Hormones and Heredity

  • If there are an odd number of chromosomes, 2_N_-1, in all the gametocytes of the male, as stated in most accounts of the subject, then if one chromosome fails to divide in the homotypic division, we shall have

    Hormones and Heredity

  • It is evident that what Dr. Wilson means is that the sex-chromosome is unpaired, and that although it divides like the others in the homotypic division, in the heterotypic division it has no mate and so passes with half the number of chromosomes to one pole of the division spindle, while the other group of chromosomes has no sex-chromosome.

    Hormones and Heredity

  • In one of the reduction divisions all the chromosomes divide as in ordinary or homotypic nucleus division, but in the other the chromosomes simply separate into two equal groups without division.

    Hormones and Heredity

  • Region between amino acids 687 and 830 is important for translocation of Rols and Loner under homotypic conditions.

  • ΔCT2-flag and Duf 4phos-flag to efficiently translocate Rols but not Loner, under homotypic conditions, might be reflective of different requirements for the translocation of Rols versus Loner.

  • Previous studies have shown that Duf dependent translocation of Rols and Loner can be reproduced in S2 cells that adhere to each other under homotypic conditions
