Bio, Mitosis

Mitosis and the Cell Cycle

Cell Cycle Order Interphase Prophase Metaphase Anaphase Telophase Cytokinesis
Cancer Loss of ability to control the cell cycle. Continuous mitosis leads to tumors.
External Regulatory Factors Outside signals that regulate the cell signal.
Internal Regulatory Factors Allows cell cycle to proceed only when previous steps are finished.
Cyclins Proteins that regulate steps in a cell cycle.
Interphase Spindle begins to form
Cytokinesis Two cells are identically split.
Telophase Chromosomes at either ends gather and begin to unwind
Anaphase Sister chromatids seperate and are pulled toward opposite "poles".
Metaphase Spindle completely formed
Prophase Spindle begins to form.
M-Phase Made up of cytokinesis and mitosis.
Interphase G1, G2, S-phase together in the period when the cell is not actively dividing.
Preperation for Mitosis G2 phase, second growth phase
DNA replication S-Phase DNA cell is duplicated.
G1 Phase First Growth when cells perform their cells every day activities such as growing and making organelles.
Cell Division The process by which a cell divides into two new daughter cells.
Chromatids Consists of two identical sister chromatids.
Centromeres Point in the center of a chromatid.
Cell Cycle Series of events that cells go through as they grow and divide.
Centrioles Two tiny structures located in the cytoplasm near the nuclear envelope.
