Cell Cycle, Mitosis and Meiosis 

Mitosis

Questions to answer:

  1. What has to occur for a cell to divide?  What purposes do these divisions serve?
  2. Why does the DNA condense into chromosomes during cell division?
  3. Explain what happens during each of the following phases of the cell cycle in a typical eukaryotic cell:
  1. Interphase
  1. G1
  2. S
  3. G2
  1. Prophase
  2. Pro-Metaphase
  3. Metaphase
  4. Anaphase
  5. Telophase
  6. Cytokinesis
  1. What is different about cytokinesis in animal-like cells as compared to plant-like cells?
  2. If a cell has 12 pairs of chromosomes in G1 of interphase, how many chromosomes does it have during each of the following phases of the cell cycle?
  1. G2
  2. Metaphase
  3. Immediately after cytokinesis.
  1. Briefly discuss the evolutionary trend in mitosis shown in the protists.
