sequence of life stages leading from the adults of one generation to the adults of the next
orderly sequence of events that extends from the time a cell divides to form two daughter cells to the time those daughter cells divide
coiling of chromatin into chromosomes, formation of mitotic spindle, fragmentation of nuclear envelope
attatchment of microtubules to kinetochores, centromeres and thus chromosomes line up on metaphase plate
begins when the centromeres of each chromosome come apart, separation of sister chromatids into daughter chromosomes, spindle microtubules retract
spindle shaped structure formed of microtubules and proteins involved in the movements of chromosomes
microtubule-organizing center, cytoplasmic material of a eukaryotic cell that contains centrioles and gives rise to microtubules
shallow grove in an animal cell's surface that forms during cytokinesis of cell division
first stage of mitosis: coiling of chromatin into chromosomes, formation of mitotic spindle, fragmentation of nuclear envelope
second stage of mitosis: attatchment of microtubules to kinetochores, centromeres and thus chromosomes line up on metaphase plate
third stage of mitosis: begins when the centromeres of each chromosome come apart, separation of sister chromatids into daughter chromosomes, spindle microtubules retract
