In this practical, students will prepare and observe dividing cells from the meristems of actively growing garlic root tips. This is an improved and simplified protocol from the well-known version using acetic orcein. Toluidine blue is used to stain the DNA in the meristem cells, giving a simpler and less hazardous process for the students, and producing an excellent level of contrast within the cells see image above. In plants, cell division by mitosis is restricted to specific tissues, called meristems, that are found at the growing root and shoot tips and in the cambium between the xylem and phloem of the vascular bundle.
PHH3 is a histone protein is present during chromatin condensation during mitosis and it is not present during apoptosis This antibody is useful to label mitoses and separate from apoptotic bodies and karyorrhectic debris Staining pattern: PHH3 is an effective marker of mitotic figures It can be used to identify mitoses and help classify tumor grades, such as in tumors in CNS, skin, gynecologic, soft tissue and GIST In contrast, Ki67 is expressed in cells throughout the cell cycle from late G1 phase except G0 ; and since many cells do not survive the cell cycle, the Ki67 proliferation index may not be representative of the proliferative potential of a tumor This antibody has been shown to be a helpful adjunct in classifying meningiomas1, 5, and a recent study suggests it may be used to help predict survival4 PHH3 may help in the classification of astrocytomas2 Studies have shown that PHH3 expression is higher in malignant melanomas as compared to Spitz nevi, and thus both PHH3 and Ki67 can be used in separating malignant melanomas from benign nevi3 References: Kim YJ et al: Prognostic significance of the mitotic index using the mitosis marker anti-phospho-histone H3 in meningiomas.

In this experiment, I investigated slides of root tips and analyzed the phases of mitosis and the relative duration of each phase in the meristem root tissue. An organism’s growth is delicately controlled by regulating the cell cycle. Mitosis is the cell cycle process in which nuclear division.
The NIMA-related kinases represent a family of serine/threonine kinases implicated in cell cycle control. The founding member of this family, the NIMA kinase of Aspergillus nidulans, as well as the fission yeast homologue Fin1, contribute to multiple aspects of mitotic progression including the timing of mitotic entry, chromatin condensation, spindle organization and cytokinesis.
In such cases, it is difficult to assess the risk of recurrence. 6 We report here the long-term outcome of a patient with a cm gastric GIST with a mitotic index of .

LabBench Activity Key Concepts I: Mitosis. There are two kinds of cell division in eukaryotes. Mitosis is division involved in development of an adult organism from a single fertilized egg, in growth and repair of tissues, in regeneration of body parts, and in asexual reproduction.
In mitosis, the parent cell produces two "daughter cells" that are genetically identical.
