Chapter 10: Cell Growth and Division
Chapter 10 Biology
the process by which a cell divides into two new daughter cells
two identical cells
the "in-between" period of growth
cells do most of their growing
when DNA is replicated the cell enters this phase, many organelles and molecules required for cell division are produced
key proteins associated with the chromosomes are synthesized during this phase
part of the eukaryotic cell division during which the cell nucleus divides
the cell grows and replicates its DNA and centrioles
the chromatin condenses into chromosomes. the centrioles seperate, and a spindle begins to form. The nuclear membrane breaks down
the chromosomes line up across the center of the cell. Each chromosome is connected to a spindle fiber at its centromere
the sister chromatids seperate into individual chromosomes and are moved apart
the chromosomes gather at opposite ends of the cell and lose their distinct shapes. Two new nuclear membranes form.
the cytoplasm pinches in half. Each daughter cell has an identical set of duplicate chromosomes
two tiny structures located in the cytoplasm near the nuclear envelope
a fanlike microtuble structure that helps separate the chromosomes
proteins that respond to events within the cell
proteins that respond outside the cell
uncontrolled cell growth
