- process of cellular reproduction, occurring in three main stages- interphase (growth), mitosis (nuclear division), and cytokinesis (cytoplasm division)
- 1st stage of mitosis, during which the cell's chromatin condenses into chromosomes. The nuclear membrane disappears.
- relaxed form of DNA in the nucleus of a cell
- The second stage of cell division, between prophase and anaphase, during which the chromosomes become attached to the spindle fibers
- structure that contains identical DNA copies and is formed during DNA replication
- cell structure that joins two sister chromatids. Where the spindle fibers connect
6 True/False Questions
Cancer → cells are growing out of control. The cell cycle us going out of control and causing the cells to divide too quickly. Can be caused by genetics or something else.
Cytokinesis → 2nd main stage of the cell cycle during which the cells replicated DNA divides and two genetically identical diploid daughter cells are produced
Carcinogen → A substance capable of causing cancer in living tissue
Chromatid → relaxed form of DNA in the nucleus of a cell
Anaphase → 3rd stage of mitosis in which sister chromatids are pulled apart and microtubules, along with motor proteins, move the chromosomes to opposite poles of the cell
Nucleotide → Each of the two threadlike strands into which a chromosome divides longitudinally during cell division. Each contains a double helix of DNA
