Scope note: Tipo de división del NÚCLEO CELULAR, que se produce durante la maduración de las CÉLULAS GERMINALES. Dos divisiones sucesivas del núcleo celular, seguidas de la duplicación de un cromosoma único (FASE S), dan lugar a células hijas con la mitad del numero de CROMOSOMAS que las células progenitoras.
