Mitosis Vs. Meiosis

  1. What is Mitosis ???
    Mitosis is cell division and has four phases. Because you have Ms.Charles, you might have to be a bit more elaborate.
  2. General Knowledge:

    Cell Cycle
    The Cell grows & prepares for division, and divides to form daughter cells.

    Four phases in the cell:

    G1: Cell increases in size.

    • S: Chromosomes are replicated
    • G2: Preparation for the M phase (Mitosis)

    *NOTE* Mitosis is a part of the cell cycle, and has its own FOUR phases.
  3. Four Phases in MITOSIS are ?
    Prophase

    Metaphase

    Anaphase

    Telephase
  4. Image Upload 1Prophase


    Prophase:
    Chromosomes become visible. Centrioles take up their positions on opposite sides of the nucleus.
  5. Image Upload 2Metaphase


    Metaphase:
    Chromosomes line up across the equator (center) of the cell.
  6. Image Upload 3Anaphase
    Anaphase: Centromeres that join the sister chromatids seperate and become individual chromosomes. The chromosomes continue to move apart until they have reached the poles of the cell.
  7. Image Upload 4Telephase
    Telephase: Nuclear envelope reforms around each cluster of chromosomes. Mitosis is complete, but cell division is not.
  8. VOCABULARY:

    Cytokinesis is the (a)__________ of the (b)__________. Each part contains its own (c)__________ and cytoplasmic
    (d)__________.
    • (A) seperation
    • (B) cytoplasm
    • (C) nucleous
    • (D) organelles
