Define the process of Mitosis.
Mitosis is a form of nuclear cell division in which one nucleus divides to form two nuclei, each with the identical number of chromosomes.
Mitosis is a form of nuclear cell division in which one nucleus divides to form two nuclei, each with different number of chromosomes.
Mitosis is a form of nuclear cell division in which one nucleus divides to form four nuclei, each with the identical number of chromosomes.
What is the name of the cell the newly formed nuclei are enclosed in?
After mitosis, the genes located on each chromosome are different.
What characteristic defines interphase?
The cell is rapidly dividing
The cell is not dividing
What is the name given to the elongated mass of chromosomes in a cell during interphase?
What cellular components are produced during interphase?
At the end of interphase and the start of prophase, what happens to the chromatin?
It starts to divide
It starts to contract
It starts to restrict
What is the name given to the point where two chromosomes are held together?
What cellular organelles are made in the nucleolus?
What happens to the nucleolus during prophase?
It starts to produce ribosomes
What is the name given to the fibres that appear in the cytoplasm during prophase?
In metaphase, the nuclear membrane completes its breakdown.
What does the spindle fibre attach to during metaphase?
What happens to the chromosomes during metaphase?
They begin to separate
They condense to form chromatin
They line up along the equator of the cell
The spindle fibres start to contract during anaphase, what happens to the centromeres?
They start to split
They start to multiply
They stop dividing
How many chromosomes are present in the cell during anaphase?
What happens to the chromosomes in the cell during telophase?
They begin to lengthen and become hard to distinguish
They begin to shorten and form chromatin
What happens during telophase?
The spindle fibres break down
The nucleolus begins to form
The chromosomes line up along the equator of the cell
A nuclear membrane forms around the cell
