What is the first stage of Mitosis?
Prophase
1 of 12
During Metaphase what happens to the chromosomes?
Chromosomes line up in the middle of the cell and are attached to the spindle by their centromeres
2 of 12
How many stages of Mitosis are there?
Four
3 of 12
That two stages make up the Cell Cycle?
Interphase - Mitosis
4 of 12
Describe what happens during Prophase
The Nuclear membrane breaks down - Chromosomes condense - Centrioles move to opposite ends of the nucleus
5 of 12
Define: Asexual reproduction
An individual that produces offspring that are genetically identical to itself, by Mitosis
6 of 12
What stages occur before and after Anaphase?
Before = Metaphase After = Telophase
7 of 12
What happens to DNA during Interphase?
The DNA unravels and replicates itself, forming twice the amount of genetic content as before
8 of 12
What is Interphase necessary for?
Cell growth - DNA replication
9 of 12
Telophase is the final stage of Mitosis, what happens during this stage?
Nuclear envelope forms making two separate Nuclei - Cytoplasm surrounding the nucleus divides - The chromatids reach the end or poles on the spindle, causing them to uncoil forming Chromosomes
10 of 12
What changes occur in the nucleus during Anaphase?
The cell spindles contract, pulling the chromatids to opposite ends of the nucleus
11 of 12
Name two things Mitosis is needed for?
Growth - Repair
