Question Answer
What is the difference between mitosis and meiosis? mitosis produces two daughter nuclei with the same number of chromosomes as parent cell, meiosis produces four daughter nuclei with half the number of chromosomes to parent cell
Name the steps of mitosis in correct order Interphase, Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, Telophase.
What is the longest stage of mitosis and what occurs during this stage? Interphase, the genetic information replicates
What happens during: 1) prophase? 2) metaphase? 1- nucleolus disappears, nuclear envelope disintegrates and chromosomes become visible. 2- spindle forms and the chromosomes line up along the equator of the cell
What happens during: 1) anaphase? 2) telophase? 1- spindle fibres attach to chromatids and pull them to opposite poles of the cell. 2- nuclear envelope reforms along with nucleolus and spindle fibres disintegrate
What is the name for the splitting of the cells cytoplasm? cytokinesis
What are the three main reasons for an organism to reproduce cells via mitosis? growth, repair and differentiation.
