cell divisions

mitosis and meiosis

TermDefinition
MITOSIS a type of cell division that results in two daughter cells each having the same number and kind of chromosomes as the parent nucleus, typical of ordinary tissue growth.
CYTOKINESIS the cytoplasmic division of a cell at the end of mitosis or meiosis, bringing about the separation into two daughter cells.
REPLICATION the action of copying or reproducing something.
CELL CYCLO the series of events that take place in a cell leading to its division and duplication of its DNA (DNA replication) to produce two daughter cells.
CHROMOSOMES a threadlike structure of nucleic acids and protein found in the nucleus of most living cells, carrying genetic information in the form of genes.
CHROMATID each of the two threadlike strands into which a chromosome divides longitudinally during cell division. Each contains a double helix of DNA.
CENTROMERE the point on a chromosome by which it is attached to a spindle fiber during cell division.
CHROMATID each of the two threadlike strands into which a chromosome divides longitudinally during cell division. Each contains a double helix of DNA.
DIPLOID of a cell or nucleus) containing two complete sets of chromosomes, one from each parent.
INTERPHASE the resting phase between successive mitotic divisions of a cell, or between the first and second divisions of meiosis.
CROSSING OVER the exchange of genes between homologous chromosomes, resulting in a mixture of parental characteristics in offspring.
TETRAD a group or set of four.
SYNAPSIS a junction between two nerve cells, consisting of a minute gap across which impulses pass by diffusion of a neurotransmitter.
POLAR BODIES each of the small cells that bud off from an oocyte at the two meiotic divisions and do not develop into ova.
GAMETOGENESIS the process in which cells undergo meiosis to form gametes.
GONAD an organ that produces gametes; a testis or ovary.
GAMETE a mature haploid male or female germ cell that is able to unite with another of the opposite sex in sexual reproduction to form a zygote.
OVUM/OVA a mature female reproductive cell, especially of a human or other animal, that can divide to give rise to an embryo usually only after fertilization by a male cell.
SPERM a male reproductive cell; spermatozoon.
HAPLOID (of a cell or nucleus) having a single set of unpaired chromosomes

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
