    The division of everything else in the cell
  17. How many chromosomes does an egg and sperm each have?
    23 chromosomes
  18. How does an aster form?
    Microtubules extend from the centrosomes radially to form an aster
  19. During what stage of mitosis do spindle fiber attach to the kinetochores of the chromosomes?
  20. During what stage of mitosis do chromatids seperate at their centromeres?
  21. During what stage of mitosis does 1 group of chromosomes move toward each pole?
  22. During what stage of mitosis does the nuclei reform and cell division is complete as cytokinesis produces 2 daughter cells?
  23. During Interphase, what is the only difference between daughter cells and the parent cells?
    It is smaller in size
  24. During what stage of mitosis do chromosomes line up along the equatorial plane of the cell?

    Prophase (Early)
  28. What period of Interphase are chromosomes replicated?
    S phase
  29. What are the phases of Interphase in order?
    Mitotic Division (M),Presynthesis (G1), Synthesis (S), and Postsynthesis (G2)
