cytokinesis Complete separation of the 2 new cells resulting from mitosis.
mitosis A process that takes place in the nucleus of a dividing cell, involves a series of steps, and results in the formation of two new nuclei each having the same number of chromosomes as the parent nucleus.
interphase Period of time where a cell carries out cell processes and replicates DNA prior to cell division
prophase Chromatin condenses into chromosomes
metaphase Chromosomes line up in the middle of the cell
anaphase Sister chromatids separate
telophase After the chromosome separates, the cell seals off, Final Phase of Mitosis.
chromatid Each half of the chromosome
chromosome A doubled rod of condensed chromatin; contains DNA that carries genetic information
centromere Area where the chromatids of a chromosome are attached
cell cycle An ordered sequence of events ; process of growth and division.
Centriole organelle the sends out spindle fibers
Spindle fiber emerge from centrioles, attach to chromosomes to pull them apart during mitosis
Purpose of mitosis divides cells that are too large, replaces damaged/dying cells, allows for growth
7 If a parent cell has 7 chromosomes, and it goes through mitosis, how many chromosomes will each daughter cell have?
14 If there are 7 duplicated (replicated) chromosomes? How many chromatids are there?
sister chromatids identical copies of DNA joined together at a centromere to form a duplicated chromosome
23 how many pairs of chromosomes in a human cell?
46 Diploid Chromosome Number in Humans
23 Haploid Chromosome Number in Humans
DNA Deoxyribonucleic acid containing the genetic information that makes up the chromosomes.
nucleus of a cell Where is DNA found?
CAGGTA If one strand of a DNA double helix has the sequence GTCCAT, what is the sequence of the other strand?
