2. dental plate; sometimes, by extension, incorrectly used to designate a complete denture.
3. a flat vessel, usually a petri dish, containing sterile solid medium for the culture of microorganisms.
4. to prepare a culture medium in a petri dish, or to inoculate such a medium with a bacterial culture.

bite plate biteplate.
cortical plate a layer of compact bone overlying the spongiosa of the alveolar process on the vestibular and oral aspects of the mandible and maxilla.
deck plate roof plate.
dental plate a plate of acrylic resin, metal, or other material that is fitted to the shape of the mouth, and serves for the support of artificial teeth.
dorsal plate roof plate.
end plate see end plate.
epiphyseal plate the thin plate of cartilage between the epiphysis and the shaft of a long bone; it is the site of growth in length and is obliterated by epiphyseal closure.
equatorial plate the collection of chromosomes at the equator of the spindle in mitosis.
floor plate the unpaired ventral longitudinal zone of the neural tube; called also ventral plate.
foot plate footplate.
force plate force platform.
medullary plate neural plate.
muscle plate myotome (def. 2).
neural plate a thickened band of ectoderm in the midbody region of the developing embryo, which develops into the neural tube; called also medullary plate.
roof plate the unpaired dorsal longitudinal zone of the neural tube; called also dorsal plate and deck plate.

Both inner and outer cortical plates were involved, with partially marginal sclerosis and eggshell-like changes; cortical bone had begun to invade adjacent soft tissues [Figure 1]g.
CBCT provides precise location of the impacted supernumerary teeth and allows accurate linear measurement of the distances from the anatomical structures and cortical plates. These advantages of CBCT enable correct and less invasive surgical planning with a less risk of damage (13, 14, 19, 31, 32).

The surrounding cortical plates remain intact in addition to the abovementioned routine features making this reported case of PIOC unique.
However, cortical excitatory neurons subsequently form radially oriented leading processes and begin radial migration into the cortical plate while they elongate their axons.
There was less cellular population in the marginal layer, and a higher concentration of neurons in the cortical plate. The entire cellular population appeared less dense compared with the control group (Fig.
On the surface of sawdust cortical plate cancellous bone was formed, among the elements it was noted the presence of hematopoietic bone marrow.
The biopsy specimen which consisted of a) eroded buccal cortical plate and b) mandibular spongiosa was sent for histopathological examination to Armed Force Institute of Pathology.
They found that by increasing expression of the unknown protein, more neurons developed in certain parts of the developing brain, including the intermediate zone and cortical plate. In contrast, decreasing expression led to fewer neurons.
PNH is a neuronal migration disorder characterised by nodules of ectopic neurons adjacent to the lateral ventricles, owing to failed migration of neurons from the germinal zone towards the cortical plate. (2) Classical bilateral PNH is the most common type and, in more than 50% of cases, is due to mutations of the X-linked Filamin A gene.
