SBio Cell Cycle

Part of the cell cycle where the cell does its job, copies the DNA, and grows as it prepares to divide. Interphase
Part of the cell cycle where the cell's genetic material divides. Mitosis
Part of the cell cycle when the cytoplasm divides forming 2 identical daughter cells. Cytokinesis
What are the 4 phases of Mitosis in order? Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, Telophase
1st stage of mitosis; the nuclear membrane disappears and the DNA condenses into chromosomes (X's). Prophase
2nd stage of mitosis; chromosomes line-up down the cell equator (in the MIDDLE). Metaphase
3rd stage of mitosis; chromosomes are pulled APART to different poles of the cell. Anaphase
4th stage of mitosis; the nuclear membrane reappears, chromosomes decondense (uncoil), and the cleavage furrow forms. Telophase
Part of the cell that aids in cell division (they look like little T's). Centrioles
DNA in its condensed form. Chromosome
String-like structures coming from the centrioles that attach to the chromosomes to pull them apart. Spindle fibers
Site where the cell starts to pinch off during Telophase. Cleavage furrow
Only seen in plant cells during Telophase, the part of the cell that becomes a new cell wall. Cell plate
Site on a chromosome where the spindle fibers attach. Centromere
6 letter phase to remember the steps of the cell cycle in order. I P M A T C
End result of the cell cycle. 2 identical daughter cells
