Meiotic Spindle Apparatus - Related but not broader or narrower
Concept UI M0581600
Scope note Microtubular array that forms at the start of MEIOSIS and acts to separate sister CHROMATIDS during meiotic division. It is similar in structure and function to the MITOTIC SPINDLE APPARATUS that forms during MITOSIS.
