what is cell cycle?

it is the events that happen in a cell leading to its division and duplication

what happens during interphase?

chromosomes and genetic material are doubled. organelles duplicate themselves. cell get ready for mitosis

Do all living things do through mitosis?

all living things go through mitosis to grow

what happens during mitosis?

there is a division of somatic cells to create new, identical cells. each cell divides to create two new cells, which then divide to make four, and the four divide to make eight

Do all cells have the same mitotic cycle?

No, some cells reproduce and replace faster than others

How many pairs of chromosomes do somatic cells contain

23 pair of chromosomes or a total of 46

what are four stages of mitotic division?

prophase, metaphase, anaphase, and telophase

what happens during prophase?

The chomosomes condenses. the nucleur membrane disappear. the spindle fibers form. the centriole migrate. the chromatids attach to spindle fibers

what happens during metaphase?

The chromatides align at the center of the cell. The chromatides are then pulled by spindle fibers

what happens during anaphase?

The centromere of each chromatid split. One chromatid from each of the chromosomes moves to the centrioles

what happens during telophase?

The spindle fibers break down. The chromosomes elongate. The nucleolus reappear. The Nuclear envelope forms around each set of chromosomes

Phases of interphase?

G1, S, G2

what is GO phase?

it is the quiescent phase, no more synthesis occurs

what is G1 phase?

it is a period after mitosis has occurred.

what is S phase?

It is the period when there is DNA replication. Protein synthesis. chromosomal and centromere duplication
