Ch. 11 Mitosis

Did You Study?

Cleavage Furrow The indentation in Cytoplasmic division in a dividing animal cell
Metastasis The process in which malignant cells move from 1 part of the body to another
Interphase The phase of the cell which it will mostly be in, it is the phase that is there before mitosis begins
Neoplasm An abnormal growth of tissues in some part of the body, a characteristic of cancer
Tumor A neoplasm that forms a lump
Spindle A temporary structure that moves chromosomes during nuclear divisions
Metaphase Stage of Mitosis in which all of the chromosomes are in between the spindle poles
Asexual Reproduction Reproduction in which the offspring have only 1 parent
Prophase Stage of Mitosis in which all of the chromosomes condense and attach to the spindle poles
Telomeres Noncoding, repetitive DNA sequences at the end of chromosomes
Proto-Oncogene A gene that can become an Oncogene by mutation
Telophase The phase in which Chromosomes arrive at opposite spindle poles, decondense, and form 2 new nuclei
Cell Plate A disk-shaped structure that forms during cytokinesis in a plant cell and acts as a cross-wall between the 2 new nuclei
Oncogene Gene that helps a normal cell turn into a tumor cell
Cell Cycle A series of events from when a cell is created to when it's cytoplasm divides
Mitosis Nuclear Division mechanism that keeps the chromosome number
Homologous Chromosoome Chromosomes with the same length, shape, and genes
Anaphase Stage of mitosis in which sister chromatids split up and move towards opposite spindle poles
Cancer Disease in which malignant neoplasm disrupts body tissues physically and metabolically
