A structure formed in dividing plant cells during telophase-it grows from the middle of the cell outward to join with old cell at cell membrane
These are cells that make up the body parts of a plant or animal
*These cells have the normal/diploid number of chromosomes
a cell that can become any other kind of cell in the organism
Ex: stem cells have total potential
A cell with its own structure (shape) and function (job); can't be any other kind of cell; fully differentiated
the process by which cells become different from each other and have special functions
A single, twisted thread of DNA used to direct cell activities. This is the condition of the DNA during interphase while the cell is carrying out its normal functions.
The form of cell division in Prokaryotic cells. This is simpler and quicker than mitosis because there is only one ring shaped piece of DNA to copy and send to new cells.
A double condensed coil of DNA which forms during late interphase. It is easier for the DNA to move through the stages of mitosis in this condensed form
One half of a chromosome made of a single coil of DNA
The point of attachment between two chromatids. The centromere attaches to the spindle fibers during mitosis and helps chromatids move to the opposite side of the cell during mitosis.
The original cell being described.
The term used to describe the two new cells which form at the end of cell division.
The opposite ends of a cell. Chromatids move toward the poles during anaphase.
The midline of the cell. Chromosomes line up on the equator of the cell during metaphase
