The process by which a cell divides into two daughter cells cell division
The production of genetically identical offspring from a single parent is known as asexual reproduction asexual reproduction
Offspring produced by sexual reproduction inherit some of their genetic information from each parent sexual reproduction
DNA, genetic information, that is bundled and packaged in the cell in preparation for cell division (rather than being in long strands of chromatin) chromosome
DNA exists in the nucleolus in chromatin form; "beads on a string" the beads are histone proteins and the the string is the DNA chromatin
A series of events where a cell grows, prepares for division and divides to form two daughter cells cell cycle
Part of cell cycle where the cell grows, DNA replicates, and the organelles and molecules produced for cell division interphase
Duplication of the cell's genetic information which is described by four phases mitosis
First described phase of mitosis, takes the longest, the genetic material inside the nucleus condenses and the duplicated chromosomes become visible. Outside the nucleus, a spindle starts to form prophase
Where the duplicated strands of DNA attach centromere
One of the duplicated strands of DNA, sometimes the two strands are referred to sister chromatids chromatid
Tiny paired structures where spindles come from to attach to the centromere to centrioles
The second phase of mitosis; the centromere of the duplicated chromosomes line up across the center of the cell. Spindle fibers connect the centromere of each chromosome to the the two poles of the spindle metaphase
Third event of mitosis; the chromosomes separate and move along spindle fibers to opposite ends of the cell anaphase
The fourth and final phase of mitosis; the chromosomes, which were distinct and condensed, begin to spread out into a tangle of chromatin; the nuclear envelope re-forms around each cluster of chromosomes . the spindle breaks apart and a nucleolus becomes visible in each daughter nucleus.
