10 Cards in this Set

  • Front
  • Back
The stage of the cell cycle during which the cell's nucleus divides into two nuclei and one copy of the DNA is distributed in each daughter cell.
Mitosis
Chromosomes line up across the center of the cell. Each chromosome attaches to a spindle fiber at its centromere, which still holds the chromatids together.
Metaphase
Chromosomes begin to spread out and lose rodlike appearance. New nuclear membrane forms around each region of chromosome.
Telophase
The regular sequence of growth and division that cells undergo.
Cell Cycle
The process by which a cell makes a copy of the DNA in its nucleus.
Replication
The stage of the cell cycle that takes place before cell division occurs; during this stage, the cell grows, copies its DNA, and prepares to divide.
Interphase
One of the pair of the identical rods of a chromosome.
Chromatid
The final stage of the cell cycle, in which the cell's cytoplasm divides, distributing the organelles into each of the two new cells
Cytokinesis
Centromeres split. Two chromatids separate. Move to opposite ends of the cell. Opposite ends pull apart.
Anaphase
Chromatin in the nucleus condenses to form chromosomes. Spindle fibers form. Nuclear membrane breaks down.
Prophase
