How do the daughter cells at the end of mitosis and cytokinesis compare with their parent cell when it was in G1 of the cell cycle?
The daughter cells have the same number of chromosomes and the same amount of DNA
Cytokinesis usually, but not always, follows mitosis. If a cell completed mitosis but not cytokinesis, what would be the result>
a cell with two nuclei

If a cell has 8 chromosomes at metaphase of mitosis, how many chromosomes will it have during anaphase?
8 (or 16)
During which phase(s) of mitosis do we find chromosomes composed of two chromatids?
from G2 of interphase through metaphase

cancer cells continue to divide even when they are tightly packed together
In teleophase of mitosis, the mitotic spindle breaks down and the chromatin uncoils. This is essentially the opposite of what happens in ______.
Which of the following phases of mitosis is essentially the opposite of pro metaphase in terms of the nuclear envelope?

One event occurring during prophase is ______.
the beginning of the formation of a spindle apparatus.
During anaphase of mitosis ______.
the centromeres divide, centrioles are at opposite poles, a spindle made of microtubules is present, identical chromatids move to opposite poles
Which one of the following represents a mismatch or incorrect description?

Certain yeast cells secrete a molecule called the a factor. The purpose of this molecule is to ______.
stimulate an a year cell to for toward the a cell
Cells use different signaling strategies to achieve different goals. In hormonal signaling ______.
specialized cells release hormone molecules into the circulatory system, permitting distant cells to be affected
Steroid hormones can enter a cell by simple diffusion. Therefore steroids ______.
do not initiate cell signaling by interacting with a receptor in the plasma membrane
G-protein-linked receptors ______. whereas receptor tyrosine kinases ______.
are not enzymes; have enzymatic function
Which of the following is activated when the binding of single molecules causes it to form a dimer?
(Free Response) Describe the role of cyclin in the cell cycle.
Cyclin plays a vital role in the cell division of the cell cycle. At the end of G2 pause, cyclin combines with CDK. Once this happens, MPF is activated and now can enter into the mitotic phase of cell division. As cyclin accumulates MPF is able to pass the next checkpoint. As cyclin increase, MPF increases in activity. Once the MPF decomposes, cyclin turns in CDK/ This CDK is used as recycled material in the next cell division where the new cyclin joins with the recycled CDK to restated the process over again and finish out cell replication. Cyclin helps activate MPF so the cell can enter mitosis.
