Cell Reproduction

life science

structure in the nucleus which contains hereditary material Chromosome
holds together the two chromatid which make a chromosome Centromere
single strand of hereditary material; half a chromosome Chromatid
attaches to the end of the spindle fibers to move the chromosomes Centriole
attaches to the centromere during mitosis to help move the chromosomes Spindle Fibers
process in which the nucleus of a cell divides to create two new nuclei; purpose is to create two new cells identical to the original Mitosis
chromosomes duplicate; where cells spend most of their life Interphase
chromosomes pair up and nuclear membrane dissolves; first step in mitosis Prophase
pairs of chromosomes line up in the middle of the cell Metaphase
chromosomes split and move to opposite sides of the cell Anaphase
new nuclear memberane forms to create two new cells Telophase
two cells formed in mitosis separate; a new cell membrane forms Cytokinesis
process of cell division which forms four reproductive cells from one original cell Meiosis
cell which makes up all of an organism; produced through mitosis Body cell
male or female cell used in reproduction; produced through meiosis Sex/reproductive cell
a cell which has two of every chromosome; body cell Diploid cell
a cell with only half the number of chromosomes all other cells have; reproductive cell Haploid cell
the life cycle of a cell Cell Cycle
