Mitosis review


Mitosis Process that forms two new nuclei, each with complete copies of DNA
DNA Contains information that determines the traits of living things; packaged into structures called chromosomes.
Chromosomes Made of chromatin and DNA
Cell Cycle Life cycle of the cell, has three stages, interphase, mitosis and cytokinesis
Interphase Part of cell cycle when cell is NOT dividing
Cytokinesis Occurs during last phase of cell cycle; cytoplasm divides and two new cells form
Unicellular Single-celled organism
Multicellular Having many cells
Prophase Chromosomes condense and become visible under a microscope, the membrane around the nucleus breaks down.
Anaphase Chromosomes separate and are pulled to opposite sides of the cell.
Telophase Last phase of mitosis, new nuclear membrane forms around each group of chromosomes. Chromosomes become less and cytokinesis begins
Metaphase Chromosomes line up in the middle of the cell
Meiosis Type of cell division that produces cells for sexual reproduction.
Sex Cell Controls development of sex characteristics
Homologous chromosome Have the same genes in the same sequences and have the same structure, but alleles may differ.
