- b a one-celled microorganism that contains no nucleus.
- c the first and longest stage of mitosis. In this stage the chromosomes condense, the nucleus and nucleolus disappear, and the centrioles move to opposite sides of the cell. The spindle forms and attaches to the chromosomes during this stage
- d stage following mitosis in which the cytoplasm of a cell divides into two equal portions, each with one nucleus
- e a cell that has a true nucleus surrounded by a membrane (or nuclear envelope). This group includes all animal and plant cells, except blue-green algae.
5 Multiple Choice Questions
- a dark structure seen within the nucleus
- the second stage of in mitosis in which the double chromosomes line up along the cells equator and are split into single chromosomes
- the stage in mitosis in which individual chromosomes, after being separated into double chromosomes, move to opposite sides of the cell. Each cell receives one complete set of chromosomes.

cell plate → the sequence of growth and division that dividing cells go through. The cycle includes interphase, mitosis, and cytokinesis.
microtubules → cylindrical structures in animal cells from which the spindle extends from in mitosis
chromatid → structures composed of a very long stand of DNA that has been tightly compacted. Within this DNA lie the genes for the organism
nucleus → a dark structure seen within the nucleus
cytoplasm → area within a cell between the nucleus and the outer cell membrane
