Mitosis
A type of cell division that results in two daughter cells each having the same number and kind of chromosomes as the parent nucleus.
prophase
Chromosomes become visible, nuclear membrane dissolves, spindle fibers forms
metaphase
Chromosomes line up in the middle of the cell
anaphase
Phase of mitosis in which the chromosomes separate and move to opposite ends of the cell
telophase
Phase of mitosis in which a nuclear membrane reforms around each new set of chromosomes.
cytokinesis
Division of the cytoplasm during cell division
interphase
A period of time in between mitosis during which a cell grows and copies its DNA,
Cell spend most of its time in this phase.
centromere
Area where the chromatids of a chromosome are attached
centriole
Cell organelle that aids in cell division in animal cells only
spindle fibers
help pull apart the cell during replication and are made up of micrtubules
chromatin
DNA and protein that makes up chromosomes
chromosome
A threadlike, gene-carrying structure found in the nucleus. Each chromosome consists of one very long DNA molecule and associated proteins.
chromatid
one of two identical "sister" parts of a duplicated chromosome
