Cleavage Furrow The plasma membrane pinches in until the cytoplasm in divided into two equal parts

Parent Cell The original cell
Phases of Mitosis Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, Telophase
Phases of the Cell Cycle Interphase, Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, Telophase, Cytokinesis
Prophase Chromosomes become visible, nuclear membrane breaks down
Purpose of Mitosis To make new cells, to replace dead or damaged cells
Somatic Cells Body cells
S (Synthesis) Duplication of chromosomes, ensures each daughter cell has a copy of DNA
