Code Pattern Previous Nomenclature Description
AC-24
Centrosome
centrioles

Distinct centrioles (1-2/cell) in cytoplasm and at the poles of mitotic spindle.                                                

AC-25
Spindle fibers
none

The spindle fibers between the poles are stained in mitotic cells, associated with cone-shaped decoration of the mitotic poles. Spindle fibers cover both NuMA-like and non-NuMA patterns. NuMA-like pattern has associated distinct nuclear speckles. Only non-NuMA patterns are shown here while NuMA-like patterns are shown in the NuMA-like group.

AC-26
NuMA-like
MSA-1, centrophilin

 Nuclear speckled staining with spindle fibers.                        

AC-27
Intercellular bridge
stem body, midbody

 Staining of the intercellular bridge that connects daughter cells by the end of cell division, but before cell separation.                        

AC-28
Mitotic chromosomal
chromosome coat protein, dividing cell antigen, mitotic chromosome autoantigen (MCA)

 Punctate coloration of chromosomes in pro- and metaphase with no staining of interphase cells.
