Mitosis cell division
Chromosome tightly coiled DNA (easy to move)
Chromatin loosely coiled DNA (easy to read)
Chromatid chromosomes after they split
Centriole DNA "fishing pole" (used to move DNA)
Spindle Fiber DNA "fishing line" (used to move DNA)
Centromere holds sister chromatids together
Nucleus contains DNA
Sister Chromatids identical pieces of chromosome
Parent Cell the original cell
Daughter Cells the "offspring" of a parent cell
DNA instructions for a cell's life
Genes pieces of DNA that code for traits
Interphase G1 S and G2 phases of the cell cycle
Prophase the beginning of mitosis; chromosomes, spindle fibers, and centrioles form; nucleus dissolves
Metaphase chromosomes line up in the middle of the cell; spindle fibers attach at centromeres
Anaphase spindle fibers shorten and chromosomes are pulled to each pole
Telophase centrioles and spindle fibers dissolve; a new nucleus forms
Cytokinesis cell splits into two fully independent cells
