cell process following meosis or mitosis in which the cells cytoplasm divides and seperates into new cells.
cell growth phase where a cell increases in size, carries on metabolism, duplicates chromosomesprior to division.
short second phase of mitosis where doubled chromosomes move to the equator of the spindle and chromatids are attached by centromeres to a seperate spindle fiber
period of nuclear cell division in which two daughter cells are formed, each containing a complete set of chromosomes.
group of two or more tissues organized to perform complex activities within organisms
multiple organs that work together to perform a specific life function
first and longest phase of mitosis where chromatin coils into visible chromosomes
identical halves of duplicated parent chromosomes formed during the prophase stage of mitosis; the halves are held together by a centromere
cell structures composed of microtubile fibers; forms between the centrioles during prophase and shorten during anaphase, pulling apart sister chromatids
final phase of mitosis during which new cells prepare for their own independent existence
groups of cells that work together to perform a specific function
uncontrolled cell division that may be caused by environmental factors and/or changes in enzyme producing in the cell cycle
segment of DNA that controls the protein production and cell cycle
