Definitions for "Cleavage"
The act of cleaving or splitting.
The quality possessed by many crystallized substances of splitting readily in one or more definite directions, in which the cohesive attraction is a minimum, affording more or less smooth surfaces; the direction of the dividing plane; a fragment obtained by cleaving, as of a diamond. See Parting.
Division into laminæ, like slate, with the lamination not necessarily parallel to the plane of deposition; -- usually produced by pressure.
Division of one cell into 2, 2 into 4, 4 into 8, etc
Multiple definitions. To embryologists, cleavage refers to stages in the development of embryos, when then go from one-cell to two-cell to four-cell embryos and so on.
"the series of cell divisions by which a single fertilized egg cell is transformed into a multicellular body, the blastula. Characteristically no growth occurs during cleavage, the shape of the embryo is unchanged except for the formation of a central cavity (the blastocoel), and the ratio of nuclear material (DNA) to cytoplasm increases" (127).

Cleavage was a Canadian band based mainly in Toronto, Ontario. Members included Lukas Rossi on lead vocals, John Jamieson on drums & percussion, Bill Jamieson on bass, Jeff Smith on guitar, piano, and backing vocals. The four members of the band grew up in the same neighbourhood and had known each other since childhood.
Fracture involving shelling off a cartilage with avulsion of small fragment of capitellum humeri. Also called Kocher fracture.
The clef, separation or hollow visible between a woman's breast when a low-cut garment is worn.
Cleavage is the cleft created by the partial exposure of a woman's breasts, especially when exposed by low-cut clothing. The neckline of a garment that exposes cleavage is known as décolletage.
A chemical reaction in which a large molecule is broken apart into two or more subunits. Usually in biological systems the net effect is to add water to the molecules, hence this type of cleavage is called hydrolysis.
Act of cutting a molecule, usually referring to a specific cut or digestion that is catalyzed by an enzyme.
Separation of paint layers or ground and support. Caused by deterioration of adhesion between layers.
The separation of the layers of paint from the ground of a painting, which may cause cracking and blistering between layers. This eventually causes the paint to flake off.
a straight crack with no

the line formed by a groove between two parts (especially the separation between a woman's breasts)
the area between the breasts. The obvious *demarcation* line where the breasts are separated.
Physical Properties and Testing Mode of application of a force to a joint between rigid adherends which is not uniform over the whole are but results in a stress concentrated at one edge.
Process of releasing a compound from a solid support, thereby permitting assay or analysis of the compound by solution-phase methods. Dissolution of the compound following cleavage, rather than the cleavage step itself, may be rate-limiting.
Piercing of the cleavage, usually vertically but horizontal is possible in some cases.
