-cell prepares to divide into 2 cells
Stages of Mitosis
Prophase
Metaphase
Anaphase
Telophase
Explain Prophase
-Chromatin condenses to form chromosomes
-Nuclear membrane breaks down
Explain Metaphase
Chromosomes split line up across the center
Explain Anaphase
Centromeres split and the 2 chromotids seperate and move to opposite sides of the cell
Explain Telophase
New nuclear memberane forms around each region of chromosomes
Describe Mitosis
-cells nucleus divides into two nuclei
-one copy of DNA is given to each of the two daughter cells
-*# of chromosomes in the parent cell= # of chromosomes in each of the two new daughter cells
Describe Cytokinesis in an Animal Cell
Cell membrane pinches in at middle of cell & cell pinches in two
Describe Cytokinesis in an Plant Cell
