Each daughter cell resulting from mitotic cell division has exactly as many chromosomes as the parent cell


Apoptosis is programmed cell suicide, but cancer cells fail to undergo apoptosis


Final preparation for cell division is made during the cell life cycle subphase called G2


Chromatin consists of DNA and RNA


In osmosis, movement of water occurs toward the solution with the lower solute concentration


The genetic information is coded in DNA by the regular alternation of sugar and phosphate molecules


A process by which large particles may be taken into the cell for food, protection of the body, or disposing of old or dead cells is called phagocytosis


The orderly sequence of the phases of mitosis is prophase, metaphase, anaphase, and telephase


Diffusion is always from areas of greater to areas of lesser concentration


DNA transcription is another word for DNA replication


Interstitial fluid reresents one type of extracellular material


The cell (plasma) membrane normally contains substantial amounts of cholesterol


Only one cell type in the human body has flagellum


Telomeres are the region of chromosomes that code for the protien ubiquitin


what happens during generation of a membrane potential

Both potassium and sodium ions leak through the cell membrane due to diffusion

swell and burst

describe plasma membrane

the phospholipid bilayer surrounds cell

fingerlike projections that greatly increase the absorbing surface of cells
