What happens in Prometaphase
Chromosomes attach to microtubles at the kinetochores

Chromosomes move to equator of the cell
What happens in metaphase
Alignment of chromosomes along metaphase plate
-not an actual structure
-future axis of cell division
What happens in Anaphase
Proteins holding centromeres of sister chromatids are degraded, freeing individual chromosomes
Chromosomes are pulled to opposite poles (anaphase A)

in anaphase chromosomes move towards centrosoms by the ...??
dissolving "glue" by proteolysis of one subunit of cohesin commplex
What happens in Telophase
Chromosomes are clustered at opposite poles and decondense
Nuclear envelopes re-form around chromosomes
Golgi complex and ER re-form
Cytokinesis happens in ...??
what are the basic problems in Cell cycle control??
DNA must be replicated once per cell cycle
Sister chromatids must segregate accurately
Cell division must be coupled to growth and conditions
Events must ve coordinated

Cyclin B is necessary, but NOT sufficient
In the cell cycle inhibitory _________ msut be _______ before MFP is ______
Phosphate must be removed (phosphate) before MFP is active (active cdk1)
Different CDK/Cyclin Complexes are Important at _____???
at Different Points in the Cell Cycle
