(mid'bod-ē),
A dense stalk of residual interzonal spindle fibers (microtubules) and actin-containing filaments that is formed during anaphase of mitosis and connects daughter cells during telophase; midbodies are frequently observed between spermatids.

Rare autoantibody patterns were evaluated as mitotic (midbody, spindle fibers, centriole and rod and rings), nuclear (PCNA-like) and cytoplasmic (anti-golgi, anti-actin) in our retrospective analyses.
FA decrease (red-yellow scale, p <.05, TCFE corrected; green: skeleton) is evident bilaterally in the midbody of the corpus callosum and in the anterior cingulum bundles.
At the telophase of the second mitotic division (MT2), the width of the midbody that formed between each blastomere decreased with the contraction of the contractile ring as in the first cleavage.
Using anatomical connectivity mapping (ACM) and DTI, we also previously reported decreased FA within the optic radiations in the same blind groups, whereas ACM was mainly decreased within the splenium and midbody of the corpus callosum [18].
