Diploid

Having two homologous chromosomes in pairs in the nucleus so that twice the haploid number is present, usually written as 2n.

diploid

A diploid cell has its chromosomes in homologous pairs, and thus has 2 copies of each autosomal genetic locus. The diploid number (2n) equals twice the haploid number and is the characteristic number for most cells other than gametes.

diploid

(dip´loid) having two full sets of chromosomes, as normally found in the somatic cells of eukaryotes (2n or, in humans, 46). See also haploid.
