Cell Cycles: Interphase, Mitosis, Cytokinesis

Cell Cycle: nuclear division, cytokinesis Parental cell: genetic copies of parental cell 3 process: checks/ regulators for each step to ensure timely progression, replication process to synthesis DNA into two copies, interwoven “cables” and “motors” of mitotic cytoskeletons. Chromosomes: nuclear units of genetic information; DNA molecules combined with proteins. In eukaryotes, heredity information of nucleus…

Mitosis and the Cell Cycle

Genetic continuity is the transmission of the hereditary material through cell division. The Cell Cycle –      cells do not divide continuously –      in cells capable of dividing, the period between cell divisions is called interphase –      cells spend most of their time in interphase because this is the phase where they perform their functions (obtaining…
