nuclear division mechanism that maintains the chromosome number. Basis of body growth,tissue repair and replacement in multicelled eukaryotes; also asexual reproduction in some plants, animals, fungi, and protists
in a eukaryotic cell cycle, the interval between mitotic divisions when a cell grows, roughly doubles the number of its cytoplasmic components, and replicates its DNA
stage of mitosis during which the cell's chromosomes align midway between the poles of the spindle
stage of mitosis in which chromosomes condense and become attatched to a newly froming spindle
dynamically assembled and disassembled array of microtublesthat moves chromosomes during nuclear division
stage of mitosis during which chromosomes arrice at the spindle poles and decondense, and new nuclei form
reproductive mode by which offspring arise from one parent and inheriet that one parents genes only
after nuclear division in a plant cell, a disk shaped structure that forms a cross-wall between the two new nucllei
a thin band of actin and myosin filaments that wraps around the midsection of an animal dell. During cytoplasmic division , the band contracts and pinches the cytoplasm in two
reproductive mode by which offspring arise from two parents and inherit genes from both.
process in which homologous chromosomes exchange corresponding segments during meiosis
