Week 8 Cell Division

Prophase 1st and longest phase of mitosis when chromosomes become visible, centrioles separate and take position on opposite sides of the nucleus
centriole one of two tiny structures located in the cytoplasm of animal cells near the nuclear envelope
spindle fiber fanlike microtubule structure that helps separate the chromosomes during mitosis
Metaphase 2nd phase of mitosis where the chromosomes line up across the middle of the cell
Anaphase 3rd phase of mitosis where the chromosome pairs separate and move toward opposite poles
Telophase 4th and final phase of mitosis where the chromosomes begin to disperse into a tangle of dense material (chromatin)
cell division process by which a cell divides into two new daughter cells
chromatid one of two identical “sister” parts of a duplicated chromosome
centromere Area where the chromatids of a chromosome are attached
Interphase period of growth between cell divisions
cell cycle series of events that cells go through as they grow and divide
