Human Biology- Mitosis

HideShow resource information
What are the different events of mitosis? (in order)
Interphase, Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, Telophase, Cytokinesis.
1 of 10
What role does the G1 section of Interphase do?
G1 makes new organelles
2 of 10
What does the S section of Interphase do?
DNA replication by the semi-conservative method
3 of 10
What does the G2 section of Interphase do?
Makes lots of ATP
4 of 10
What happens in Interphase?
Cell contains 4 chromosomes but they are too long to be seen. Each chromosome replicates to form a pair of chromatids
5 of 10
What happens in Prophase?
Nulcear membrane breaks down. The 4 pairs of chromatids can be seen, because the chromosomes condense.
6 of 10
What happens in Metaphase?
Spindle forms and the pairs of chromatids attach to the equator using their centromere.
7 of 10
What happens to Anaphase?
Centromere splits and the spindle pulls on the centromere pulling the sister chromatids to opposite poles.
8 of 10
What happens in Telophase?
Nuclear membranes reform and chromosomes lengthen
9 of 10
What happens in Cytokinesis?
Cytoplasm splits and two genetically identical cells are made
