Flashcards in Cell Cycle Deck (14):
G1 is the first growth phase. This is the phase in which most active cells live and function. The cell grows in size considerably during G1.
Mitosis is often called “M Phase.”
Cells that enter the G0 phase become “non-proliferative,” meaning they are not actively dividing and may not divide in the future. This is sometimes called “rest phase.” Many full-differentiated eukaryotic neurons remain in this phase indefinitely. You may hear this state referred to as “quiescent”—which means stable, not changing, and unlikely to change.
During S phase the DNA is replicated
The G2 phase follows S phase and features continued cell growth and high metabolic activity, especially the production of microtubules in preparation for mitosis.
