What is Mitosis ???
Mitosis is cell division and has four phases. Because you have Ms.Charles, you might have to be a bit more elaborate.
The Cell grows & prepares for division, and divides to form daughter cells.
Four phases in the cell:
: Cell increases in size.
- S: Chromosomes are replicated
- G2: Preparation for the M phase (Mitosis)
Mitosis is a part of the cell cycle, and has its own FOUR
Four Phases in MITOSIS are ?
Prophase: Chromosomes become visible. Centrioles take up their positions on opposite sides of the nucleus.
Metaphase: Chromosomes line up across the equator (center) of the cell.
Anaphase: Centromeres that join the sister chromatids seperate and become individual chromosomes. The chromosomes continue to move apart until they have reached the poles of the cell.
Telephase: Nuclear envelope reforms around each cluster of chromosomes. Mitosis is complete, but cell division is not.
Cytokinesis is the (a)__________ of the (b)__________. Each part contains its own (c)__________ and cytoplasmic
- (A) seperation
- (B) cytoplasm
- (C) nucleous
