5 Matching Questions
- chromosome set
- deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA)
- a a group of chromosomes that exist together within the nucleus of a eukaryotic cell
- b a membrane-bound structure found in eukaryotic cells that contains the genetic material for the cell.
- c the structure that is the point of attachment for two chromatids in a double chromosome
- d large molecules that carry the genetic information necessary for all cellular functions. This, when tightly compacted, forms chromosomes.
- e plural form of nucleus
5 Multiple Choice Questions
- stage following mitosis in which the cytoplasm of a cell divides into two equal portions, each with one nucleus
- cylindrical structures in animal cells from which the spindle extends from in mitosis
- a cell that does not have a membrane-bound nucleus. For example, a bacterium.
- fiber-like structures that extend from opposite sides of the cell in mitosis. These form the spindle that facilitates chromosome movement.
- the last stage of mitosis in which a nuclear envelope forms around each set of chromosomes located at opposite sides of the cell. A nucleolus appears in each nucleus during this stage.
5 True/False Questions
genes → plural form of nucleus
cell cycle → the sequence of growth and division that dividing cells go through. The cycle includes interphase, mitosis, and cytokinesis.
chromosomes → structures composed of a very long stand of DNA that has been tightly compacted. Within this DNA lie the genes for the organism
mitosis → the separation of doubled chromosomes and the division of the nucleus into two nuclei that is necessary for cell division to occur in eukaryotic cells. This includes prophase, metaphase, anaphase, and telophase.
nucleolus → a dark structure seen within the nucleus
