Flashcards in Mitosis Deck (17):
1

division of the nucleus is called

Mitosis

2

Division of the cell cytoplasm

Cytokinesis

3

What is a chromosome?

Information passed from one generation to the next on chromosomes

4

Before cell division each chromosome is___

Duplicated or copied

5

What is the cell cycle

A series of events that the cell goes through when they grow and divide

6

Interphase__

The period of growth that occurs between cell divisions

7

The cell cycle consists of 4 phases-

G1, S phase, G2, M phase

8

During G1, the cell is in___

Growth phase

9

During the S phase

Chromosomes are replaced/ copied

10

The G2 phase is

The et ready to divide phase

11

Stages of Mitosis

1. Prophase
2.metaphase
3.anaphase
4.telophase and cytokinesis

12

Prophase

-first and longest phase of mitosis
-the centrioles separate and take up positions on opposite sides of the nucleus
-the spindle beings to form between centrioles

13

Metaphase

-Seconded phase
-The chromosomes line up across the center of the cell
-microtubules connect the centromere of each chromosome to the piles of the spindle

14

Anaphase

-third phase
-the sister chromatids separate into individual chromosomes a
-the chromosomes continue to move until they have separated into two groups

15

Telophase

The fourth and final phase mitosis
- chromatids are pulled to opposite poles if the cell
- Nucleolus reappears and new nuclear envelope forms around each new set of chromosomes

16

Cytokinesis

The cytoplasm pieces in half, daughter cell began to make identical set of chromosomes

17

Cell division

-two major stages:
--First one is mitosis
---Seconded is cytokinesis
