- Deoxyribonucleic acid, a self-replicating material present in nearly all living organisms as the main constituent of chromosomes. It is the carrier of genetic information.
- A substance capable of causing cancer in living tissue
- An unspecialized cell that with the right conditions can be changed into a specialized cell
- 2nd main stage of the cell cycle during which the cells replicated DNA divides and two genetically identical diploid daughter cells are produced
- Each of the two threadlike strands into which a chromosome divides longitudinally during cell division. Each contains a double helix of DNA
- 1st stage of mitosis, during which the cell's chromatin condenses into chromosomes. The nuclear membrane disappears.
6 True/False questions
Cytokinesis → 3rd main stage of the cell cycle, during which the cell's cytoplasm divides, creating a new cell
Nucleotide → Each of the two threadlike strands into which a chromosome divides longitudinally during cell division. Each contains a double helix of DNA
Anaphase → 3rd stage of mitosis in which sister chromatids are pulled apart and microtubules, along with motor proteins, move the chromosomes to opposite poles of the cell
Telophase → last stage of mitosis in which nucleoli reappear. two new nuclear membranes begin to form, but the cell has not yet completely divided
Interphase → first stage of the cell cycle, during which a cell grows, matures, and replicates its DNA (gets ready for mitosis)
Cancer → cells are growing out of control. The cell cycle us going out of control and causing the cells to divide too quickly. Can be caused by genetics or something else.
