cells and control

Mitosis
Mitosis produces identical copies of cells. This is how most of our cells divide.
1 of 10
Haploid and Diploid.
Haploid contains half the set of chromosomes while Diploid contains two complete sets of chromosomes.
2 of 10
Asexual reproduction
The production of of offspring that are clones. They have the exact same chromosomes as the parent.
3 of 10
Cancer cells
Changes in cells which means they undergo uncontrollable cell division.
4 of 10
Tumours
Production of growing lumps caused by rapid cell division. They can damage the body and cause death.
5 of 10
Prophase
The nucleus starts to break down and spindle fibres appear.
6 of 10
Metaphase
The chromosomes are lined up no the spindle fibres across the middle of the cell.
7 of 10
Anaphase
The chromosomes copies are separated and moved to either side of the cell on spindle fibres.
8 of 10
Telphase
A membrane is formed around each set of chromsomes to form nuclei.
9 of 10
Cytokikesis
A cell surface membrane forms to separate the two cells.
