kary-, karyo-, cary-, caryo- +

(Greek: nut, walnut; kernel; cell, cell nucleus)

1. A fusion of cell nuclei that occurs in fertilization or true conjugation.
2. The fusion of nuclei which is the ultimate event of fertilization.
karyogenesis, caryogenesis
The formation of the cell nucleus.
karyogenetic, caryogenetic
Heritable; not subjected to direct environmental influences.
1. The total of characteristics, including number, form, and size, of chromosomes and their grouping in a cell nucleus.

It is characteristic of an individual, race, species, genus, or larger grouping.

2. The arrangement of chromosome photomicrographs according to a standard classification.
karyokinesis, karyomitosis
1. The equal division of nuclear material that occurs in cell division.
2. The process by which a cell divides into two daughter cells, each of which has the same number of chromosomes as the original cell.
3. The series of active changes that take place in the nucleus of a living cell in the process of division.
A reference to the division of the cell nucleus by mitosis.
karyoklasis, karyoclasis
1. Disintegration of the cell nucleus.
2. The disintegration of a cell nucleus or nuclear membrane.
3. The interruption of mitosis.
Having a cell with a lobate nucleus (small rounded projection).
The condition in which the cell nucleus has a number of lobes (small rounded projections), as the nucleus of a neutrophil leukocyte.
karyologist, caryologist
1. Someone who studies cell nuclei; especially, with reference to chromosomes.
2. A specialist who researches the branch of cytology that concentrates on the study of the cell nucleus; especially, the structures and functions of the chromosomes
karyology, caryology
1. The branch of cytology that concentrates on the study of the cell nucleus; especially, the structures and functions of the chromosomes.
2. The study of the cell nucleus, its organelles, structures, and functions.
karyolymph, karyenchyma, karyochlema, linin, nuclear hyaloplasm, nuclear sap, nucleolymph, nucleochylema, nucleochyme
1. The fluid content of the cell nucleus.
2. The clear, usually nonstaining, fluid substance of a cell nucleus.

It consists primarily of proteinacous, colloidal material in which the nucleolus, chromatin, linin (threadlike), and various submicroscopic particles are dispersed.

1. Dissolution of the cell nucleus so that it no longer takes a basic stain.
2. The disappearance of the interphase nucleus during the early prophase of mitosis.

It occurs normally, both as a form of necrobiosis and during the generation of new cells through mitosis and meiosis.

1. A reference to the destruction of a cell's nucleus.
2. Descriptive of something that causes the destruction of a cell nucleus.
1. An abnormal enlargement of the cell nucleus.
2. A slight, uniform increase in nuclear size in the cells of a tissue.
