The Cell Cycle
The Cell growth & cell reproduction.
Interphase (the growth phase)
The LONGEST PHASE of the cell cycle where CELLS GROW & chromosomes duplicate.
The structure that holds together sister chromatids in a chromosome.
Found ONLY IN ANIMAL CELLS, these structures attach to the spindle fibers & pull chromosomes apart.
The type of cell division where 2 IDENTICAL DAUGHTER CELLS are formed.
Chromosomes coil into chromatids the nuclear membrane disitegrates, the spindle forms.
Chromosomes line up along the MIDDLE (EQUATOR) of the cell.
Chromosomes split APART & are pulled to opposite ends of the cell.
Nuclear membrane reforms around the chromosomes & the spindle distengrates.
In animals, the cell membrane pinches into separate cells. In plant cells, a cell wall forms & the cell membrane reforms.
