Mitosis and cancer

cell cycle the process by which cell division occurs
chromatin loose DNA and proteins in nucleus
chromosomes tightly wound up DNA and proteins
sister chromatids 2 identical halves
centromere connects 2 sister crhomatids
interphase cell is growing/copying DNA getting ready to divide
G1 Growth and development of cell
synthesis phase DNA must be copied before you make new cells
G2 Prepares for cell division
mitosis nucleus divides
prophase the nuclear envelope breaks apart and chromatin condenses into chromosomes
metaphase Chromosomes line up across the middle of the cell
anaphase each identical sister chromatid is split apart, individual chromosomes start to move to opposite sides of the cell
telophase Each side of the cell has a copy of the chromosomes, the nuclear envelope ref ors and the spin dal fibers disappear. Chromosome uncoil back into chromatin
nuclear envelope
spindle fibers connect to the center of each chromosome at the centromere
centrioles They help to organize spindle fibers
animal cell cytokinesis cell membrane moves inward until the cell is pinched into two
plant cell cytokinesis cell plate forms midway between the divided nuclei developed into cell wall
daughter cells two identical cells with the same DNA split into two
cancer is a disease with uncontrolled cell growth
factors that influence cancer Heredity Environment Lifestyle
cancer prevention Exercise Eat Healthy Do not smoke Wear sunscreen
cancer treatment options Operation Radiation therapy chemotherapy
