1. A cell that has nuclear DNA from one source and cytoplasmic DNA from another, such as a nonhuman animal cell that has had its nucleus replaced by the nucleus of a human somatic cell.
2. A cell line or organism derived from a cybrid cell.

[Blend of cytoplasmic and hybrid.]


(Genetics) a hybrid cell, being a fusion of a whole cell with a cytoplasm, containing a nuclear genome from one source and a mitochondrial genome from another
