b2 cell division

adult stem cells
stem cells that are found in adults that can differentiate and form a limited number of cells
1 of 9
cell cycle
the three-stage process of cell division in a body cell that involves mitosis and results in the formation of two identical daughter cells
2 of 9
cloning
the production of identical offspring by asexual reproduction
3 of 9
differentiate
the process where cells become specialised for a particular function
4 of 9
embryonic stem cells
stem cells from an early embryo that can differentiate to form the specialised cells of the body
5 of 9
mitosis
part of the cell cycle where one set of new chromosomes is pulled to each end of the cell forming two identical nuclei during cell division
6 of 9
stem cells
undifferentiated cells with the potential to form a wide variety of different cell types
7 of 9
therapeutic cloning
a process where an embryo is produced that is genetically identical to the patient so the cells can then be used in medical treatments
8 of 9
zygote
the single new cell formed by the fusion of gametes in sexual reproduction
