Medical Definition of Clamp connection

1. In many basidiomycete fungi a short lateral branch of a binucleate cell develops. This is the developing clamp connection. One of the nuclei migrates into it. Both nuclei then undergo simultaneous mitosis so that one end of the cell contains two daughter nuclei from each of the parental nuclei. The nucleus in the branch and the two nuclei are separated off from the centre of the cell by septa. A single nucleus remains in the central region. The clamp connection then extends towards and fuses with the central section so that a binucleate cell is reformed.
