What does mitosis produce?
Two daughter nuclei that have the same number of chromosomes as the parent cell.
1 of 11
What happens during Prophase?
Chromosomes become visible and nuclear envelope disappears.
2 of 11
What happens during Metaphase?
Chromosomes arrange themselves at the equator of the cell. Spindle fibres attach at cenrimeres and pull them apart.
3 of 11
What happens during Anaphase?
Each of the chromatids migrate to opposite poles.
4 of 11
What happens during Telophase?
Nuclear envelope reforms and spindle apparatus disappears.
5 of 11
Give three reasons for mitosis.
1.) Growth 2.) Diffrentiation 3.) Repair
6 of 11
Name the three stages of interphase.
1.) G1 (growth) 2.) S(synthesis) 3.) G2
7 of 11
What happens in the G1 phase?
Proteins produced for cell organelles to be synthesised. Carries out metabolic functions and checks carried out.
8 of 11
What happens in the S phase?
DNA is replicated.
9 of 11
What happens in the G2 phase?
Organelles grow and divide and energy stores are increased.
10 of 11
What follows nuclear division?
Cell division.
