Second phase of mitosis, during which the chromosomes line up across the center of the cell.
the regular sequence of growth and division that eukaryotic cells undergo
part of eukaryotic cell division during which the cell nucleus divides
cell with a nucleus (surrounded by its own membrane) and other internal organelles
The final stage of the cell cycle, in which the cell's cytoplasm divides, distributing the organelles into each of the two new cells.
the third phase of mitosis, during which the chromosome pairs separate and move toward opposite poles
first phase of mitosis in which chromosomes become visible and nuclear membraine disappears
identical halves of a duplicated parent chromosome formed during the prophase stage of mitosis; the halves are held together by a centromere
a string of genes
a segment of DNA that codes for a trait (example: eye color)
The first stage of the cell cycle where the cell grows, performs its normal functions, and prepares for division
structure that surrounds and protects the nucleus
the production of offspring from one parent. The offspring are genetically identical.
the region of the chromosome that holds the two sister chromatids together during mitosis
any malignant growth or tumor caused by abnormal and uncontrolled cell division
