1. A sibling cell produced during the division of a budding yeast, like Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The daughter cell develops as a protrusion of the cell wall of the mother cell. The mother retains its old cell wall components while the bud gets newly synthesized wall material (contrast with septal fission). The nucleus migrates to the neck of the bud. Here mitosis occurs with the nuclear envelope remaining intact, and a set of telophase chromosomes is delivered to each cell. 2. an underdeveloped plant shoot, consisting of a short stem bearing crowded, overlapping, immature leaves.
