1: Table of Contents | 1. Table of Contents 2.Interphase 3. First Growth 4. Synthesis 5.Second Growth 6-10. Mitosis 11. Cytokinesis
3: The stage of a cell between two successive mitotic or meiotic divisions. | Interphase takes the most time in cell division and helps prepare the cell divide.
4: First Growth Phase Cell grows rapidly and carries out routine functions. Ten hours out of twenty-four are spent here.
5: Synthesis This is when the DNA is copied. Chromatids are held together by the centromere. Takes about four to six minutes.
6: Second Growth Phase The nucleus gets ready to divide. Takes between one or two hours.
7: Mitosis Prophase Metaphase Anaphase Telophase
8: Prophase Chromosomes become visible Nuclear membrane dissolves Spindle fibers form
9: Metaphase Chromosomes line up in the middle of the cell
10: Anaphase Centromeres divide Chromosomes move towards opposite poles
11: Telophase Nuclear envelope forms at each pole Chromosomes uncoil Spindle fibers dissolve
12: Cytokinesis Cytoplasm divides Produces two daughter cells exactly like the original
