Are their any studies on the mitotic spindles during gestation in humans, in particular-during the anaphase. Are there any labratory findings showing any correlation between placental signaling in gestation and genetic binding. Would there be any data that would indicate the development of these chromosomes during any of the phases of gestation. And if so, would these findings be the same for the development of the normal fetus, or the for the fetus' with infants born with hemophyllia. In other words are there any changes in these chromosomes as opposed to the Pg9 deficit found in infants born with hemophyllia?

Also, if polymerization factors differ or remain the same for the mtDNA (mitochondria), and development in gestation. Especially with the infants born with a pg9 deficit factor.

Shape and components[edit]

The end of the "Shape and components" section has three short sentences which seem to be self-notes to the author as to what to write. They are not encyclopaedic. A knowledgeable person should repair this section. - (talk) 10:02, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Meiotic spindle[edit]

Both meiotic spindle and spindle apparatus redirect here. That is technically incorrect. To be accurate, this page should be moved to spindle apparatus and both mitotic spindle and meiotic spindle should be redirecting there. - tameeria 00:13, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

I've generalized the first sentence, but more work needs to be done on this. It only talks about centrosomal spindles. There are two important instances of acentrosomal spindles though: 1) Flowering plants don't have centrosomes, therefore they make acentrosomal spindles. 2) Centrosomes are reduced during gametogenesis in animals and therefore meiotic spindles are acentrosomal and thus quite different from mitotic spindles (e.g. see Manhandar et al.). Also, yeast and other fungi have spindle pole bodies embedded in the nuclear envelope and form an intranuclear spindle apparatus, which is yet another mode of spindle formation. - tameeria 04:10, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

Requested moe[edit]

The following discussion is an dumb discussion of the proposal. Please do modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in this section on the talk page. Further edits should be made to this section.

I've requested the move suggested above. If anyone has any concerns or suggestions, please raise them here. - tameeria 17:44, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

  • A great variety of machines have parts called "spindles". This article's name should contain the word "mitotic" to show that the nucleus-dividing variety of spindle is meant.
P.S. above: the correct spelling is "haemophilia".

The problem with "mitotic spindle" is then that it is incorrect to use the same term for "meiotic spindle" which currently redirects here. "Spindle apparatus" is a textbook term and the first 20+ hits for it on Google all talk about the cellular spindle, so I assume the biological meaning is the predominant use of the term "spindle apparatus". It currently redirects to this page anyway. Spindle already is a dab page explaining/linking other meanings. It would be easy to add a dab link to it on top of this page. - tameeria 17:39, 10 May 2007 (UTC)
The above discussion is preserved as an archive of the proposal. Please do modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in this section on this talk page. Further edits should be made to this section.

While machines may have spindles, the term spindle apparatus is overwhelmingly used to refer to mitotic or meiotic spindles. This article has been renamed from mitotic spindle to spindle apparatus as the result of a move request. --Stemonitis 09:19, 13 May 2007 (UTC)

Spindle Formation[edit]

To my knowledge, spindles are formed by the V 8 motore and specifically Eg65 or Kinesin 7. Someone should improve this section of the article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Adwol (talkcontribs) 16:48, 11 November 2009 (UTC)
