Eukaryotic cell not dividing, DNA is threads
During cell division chromatin condenses to become
(2n) chromosomes in body cells
(n) chromosomes in gametes
an enzyme that removes a phosphate group from ATP and adds it to another protein
Kinases in cell cycle are activated when they combine with a protein
before a cell actively divides, it must grow and duplicate much of its contents, so that two cells can form from one
used to describe all parts of cell cycle except the M stage
nuclear division that produces two daughter nuclei, each with the same number and kinds of chromosomes as the parental nucleus
brings about orderly distribution of chromosomes
short microtubules radiate from centrosome
every cell in your body but your egg cells; 99.9% of cells for women
During meiosis I the homologous chromosomes pair up
means that the homologous chromosomes separate independently or in a random manner
the series of changes a cell undergoes from the time it forms until it divides
division of a parent cell into daughter cells
structure that helps to form the spindle
last phase of mitosis, chromosome are in two new cells and nuclear membranes start to reform
division of the nucleus or chromosomes
phase of mitosis in which chromosomes line up in the center of the cell
first phase of mitosis in which chromosomes become visible and nuclear membraine disappears
division of the cytoplasm (cytosol and organelles)
phase of mitosis in which sister chromatids are pulled to opposite sides of the cell
uncontrolled cell division
stage of interphase in which cell grows and performs its normal functions
stage of interphase in which DNA is replicated
stage of interphase in which cell duplicates its cytosol and organelles
type of cell division that creates gametes; cell divides twice to create four cells that are genetically unique
process by which homologous chromosomes exchange pieces, resulting in greater genetic variety
