2 The first phase of the cell cycle in which the cell spends the majority of its time and performs the majority of its purposes including preparation for cell division. It begins to grow, develop, function. Also, it duplicates its DNA and organelles.
4 The final step of the Cell Cycle, it is the cytoplasmic division of a cell at the end of mitosis or meiosis, bringing about the separation into two daughter cells.
6 The state or act of dividing as a natural process of growth.
7 The Midpoint on a chromosome where the spindle fibers attach during cell division.
8 A contains the replicated DNA of each individual chromosome.
11 A structure found in a Cell's nucleus that contains hereditary material.
1 A type of cell division that has 4 stages and results in two daughter cells each the same as the parent nucleus, typical of ordinary tissue growth.
3 The structure that separates the chromosomes into the daughter cells during cell division.
5 The third step of Mitosis, During this time, the cell's centromeres divide and it's spindle fibers shorten. The chromatids separate and move to the opposite sides of the cell. The separated chromatids are now called chromosomes.
9 The first step of Mitosis, during this time, the cell's nucleolus and nuclear membrane disintegrate. The centrioles move across the cell and between the centrioles, spindle fibers spread across the cell.
10 The final phase of Mitosis or Mitosis, in which the separated chromosomes reach the opposite poles of the dividing cell and the nuclei of the daughter cells form around the two sets of chromosomes.
11 The combination of DNA and proteins that make up the contents of the nucleus of a cell.
12 The second phase of Mitosis, the nuclear membrane disappears completely. The spindle fiber fully develops and attach to the centromeres of the chromosomes. Also, the chromosomes align at the center of the cell.
