ANA Patterns - Mitotic Patterns
Code Pattern Synonym Description
AC-24
Centrosome
centrioles
Distinct centrioles (1-2/cell) in cytoplasm and at the poles of mitotic spindle.                                                                                
AC-25
Spindle fibers
MSA-2
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 coat
chromosome coat protein, dividing cell antigen, mitotic chromosome autoantigen (MCA)
Punctate coloration of chromosomes in pro- and metaphase with no staining of interphase cells.
