During the ___ phase, the nucleus and cytoplasm divide producing two new cells. mitotic
The ___ of a cell cycle differs for different organisms and cells. length
A cell performs specific ___ during interphase. functions
___ consists of three phases: G1, S, and G2. Interphase
In ___ the cell grows and carries out normal functions. G1
Some cells such as muscle, nerve, and red blood cells, stay in G1 and never ___. reproduce
In S phase, the ___ chromosome pairs in the cell’s nucleus replicate. homologous
The copies of the chromosomes made during S phase are ___ ___. sister chromatids
The replication ensures that the new cells formed are ___. identical
In ___ phase, the cell grows and functions, and some organelles replicate. G2
___ is the process by which the nucleus divides. Mitosis
___ is the process by which thecytoplasm divides. Cytokinesis
Mitosis and ___ ___ ensure that each new cell receives all it needs to function. cell division
Mitosis and cell division ___ old worn-out cells, and are the method of reproduction for some organisms. replace
Mitosis and cell division produce most cells in a ___-___ organism. many-celled
A different type of cell division produces ___ and egg cells. sperm
There are ___ phases of mitosis. four
In ___, DNA in chromosomes twists into tight coils and the nucleus breaks apart. prophase
In ___, the chromosomes move to the middle of the cell and pairs of sisterchromatids line up. metaphase
In ___, fibers attached to the centromere of the sister chromatids pull them apart toward opposite ends of the cell. anaphase
In ___, a new membrane forms around each set of chromosomes, creating twoidentical nuclei, and chromosomes become less tightly coiled. telophase
___ is the final stage of cell division. Cytokinesis
The cytoplasm and its contents divide to form two identical ___ ___. daughter cells
At the start of cytokinesis, the cell membrane ___ inward. pinches
In a cell with a cell wall, a ___ ___ forms between the two new nuclei. cell plate
