What are the three stages of the interphase? and what happens in each?
Growth Phase 1 (G1) - Cell grows back to original size / Synthesis (S) DNA & Histones Replicate by semi-conservative replication in prepartion for mitosis. / Growth Phase 2 (G2) Spindle proteins made
1 of 5
What are the first two stages of Mitosis, and what happens?
Prophase - Chromosones condensed & Visible , Centrioles to opposite poles , Nuucleolus dissapears / Metaphase - Chromosones allign at equator, Nuclear envelope dissapears , Spindle connects to centromeres
2 of 5
What are the last two stages of Mitosis, and what happens?
Anaphase - Centromeres split, seperating chromosones into sister chromatids, chromatids move towards poles / Telophase - Nuclear envelope forms around new chromatids, Chromatids uncoil to thin to see , Spindle fibers disperse
3 of 5
What is Mitosis?
The duplication of existing cells producing two genetically identical daughter cells.
4 of 5
Why is Mitosis important in the body and what is it used for in eukaryotes?
Used to grow, replacing cells that are worn out/lost , Repairing cells that are damaged or killed, Reproducing in eukaryotes for asexualness.
