aneuploid

aneuploid A cell or organism whose nuclei possess a chromosome number that is greater by a small number than the normal chromosome number for that species. Instead of having an exact multiple of the haploid number of chromosomes, one or more chromosomes are represented more times than the rest. An aneuploid typically results from non-disjunction of one or more pairs of homologous chromosomes.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.

aneuploid

aneuploid Describing a nucleus, cell, or organism in which one or more chromosomes have been added to or deleted from the complete set, so that the total number of chromosomes is not an exact multiple of the haploid number (n); for example, 2n + 1 (see trisomy) or 2n – 1 (monosomy). Compare euploid.
