One of the ways that a eukaryotic cell reproduces. This is the process of nuclear division.
One of the ways that a eukaryotic cell reproduces. This is the process of cellular division.
Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, Telophase
What are the four stages of Mitosis, in order?
(Separate with commas so that you get it right)
The organism's genetic material
DNA has segments called ____________ which have information that determines the organism's characteristics.
Each of an organism's cells contain a full set of the organism's ______.
Chromatin and Chromosome
In what two forms is DNA found?
In what stage is DNA found in loose strands called chromatin?
Loose strands of DNA
S of Interphase
In what stage is each strand of chromatin replicated to make a copy of itself?
Identical pairs of DNA strands
The tightly condensed form of DNA
In what phase of Mitosis do sister chromatids condense into chromosomes?
What are the condensed sister chromatids connected by?
The _______________________ starts to dissolve in Early Prophase
In Early Prophase, the _____________________ forms
In what phase do the chromosomes attach to the spindle apparatus?
In Late Prophase, the __________ has completely dissolved
In what phase does the spindle apparatus pull the chromosomes to line up in the middle of the cell?
In what phase do the spindle fibers pull pairs of sister chromosomes apart to opposite ends of the cell?
In what stage do nuclear envelopes form around the chromatids on each side, which creates 2 nuclei?
In Telophase, DNA relaxes into __________ form.
Each nucleus contains identical _______
The cell __________________ as it prepares to divide.
After Telophase of Mitosis, the cell goes directly into _________________, the last stage of the cell cycle
In cytokinesis, a ____________ forms between the two nuclei, which will eventually "pinch" the cell into two.
In cytokinesis, the __________________ is divided between the two cells before they are separated
At the end of cytokinesis, you have 2 identical cells. Each is now in ________of Interphase.
During cytokinesis in plant cells, instead of a furrow pinching the cell in half, a ___________ forms between the two nuclei of the plant cell. New cell walls form, and the cell plate dissolves.
