- 1st stage of mitosis, during which the cell's chromatin condenses into chromosomes. The nuclear membrane disappears.
- 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
- 2nd main stage of the cell cycle during which the cells replicated DNA divides and two genetically identical diploid daughter cells are produced
- first stage of the cell cycle, during which a cell grows, matures, and replicates its DNA (gets ready for mitosis)
- An unspecialized cell that with the right conditions can be changed into a specialized cell
- A substance capable of causing cancer in living tissue
6 True/False questions
Chromosome → DNA-containing structure that carries genetic material from one generation to another
Nucleotide → A compound consisting of a nucleoside linked to a phosphate group. Nucleotides form the basic structural unit of nucleic acids such as DNA. Sub-unit of DNA
DNA → 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.
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.
Telophase → last stage of mitosis in which nucleoli reappear. two new nuclear membranes begin to form, but the cell has not yet completely divided
Chromatid → Each of the two threadlike strands into which a chromosome divides longitudinally during cell division. Each contains a double helix of DNA
