Flashcards in Mitosis Deck (15):
1

Prophase

During prophase the nuclear membrane dissolves and the chromosomes condense.

2

Metaphase

Metaphase is indicated by the chromosomes lining up at the metaphase plate and formation of the spindle apparatus.

3

Anaphase

Anaphase is indicated by separation of the chromosomes and migration toward the opposite poles of the cell.

4

Telophase

Telophase is indicated by the nuclear membranes beginning to re- form and the chromosomes unwinding.

5

Spindle Apparatus

hold the spindle fibers and helps in anaphase

6

Centriole

they are tubules that are involved in the organization of the spindle apparatus

7

Spindle Fibers

wind in to help in anaphase. pulls on the chromosomes to separate them

8

what does mitosis yield

2 genetically identical, diploid daughter cells, which are also genetically identical to the mother cell that produced them. Centromeres split

9

interphase

Many diagrams will also show the beginning of cytokinesis. Some diagrams will also show a single cell with a well-defined nuclear membrane and uncoiled chromosomes. This would indicate interphase
