1 Cell Division: Mitosis & Cytokinesis Define mitosis and cytokinesis Describe the cell cycle and the changes that take place during interphase Discuss the events and significance of mitosis

2 Chromosomes 1.Chromosomes: o“colored body” oseen only when the cell divides ocontain genetic info in the form of DNA oare coiled chromatin 2.Composition of Chromatin oMake up chromosomes oComposed of DNA and protein called histones (helps to condense the DNA) oDNA in a chromosome is 10,000x longer than the chromosome itself oMust condense in order to separate correctly during mitosis

3 oCan only see chromosomes during division oEach chromosome replicates and is paired as sister chromatids joined at a centromere oHuman cell has 46 chromosomes (2n)  “n” number = 23 = “haploid”  2n = 46 = “diploid”  4n = 92 (during interphase)  Body cells (aka somatic cells) = 2n = 46  Sex cells (aka eggs & sperm) = n = 23 Chromosome Structure

4 The Cell Cycle 1.Growth, prepares for division, divides (anywhere from 6 hours to 100 days) 2.3 Parts: o______________ o______________ (PMAT) - few minutes to several days o______________

5 Interphase – 3 stages –More than _____% of the life of a cell is spent in this phase –G1: cell growth, development, and __________ production (longest) –S: “Synthesis”, ___ replication –G2: __________ replicated (shortest) –Note: DNA exists as _________ (no chromosomes yet)

6 Mitosis - Prophase –__________ phase of mitosis (50-60 % of total time required for mitosis) –Nuclear __________ starts to disintegrate –Chromosomes condense (become visible) – seen as 2 identical __________ lying side by side held together by __________ –__________ move to opposite poles –Spindle __________ grow from centrioles, attach at centromeres

7 Mitosis – Metaphase (hint “m”=middle) –Chromosomes attach to the _____________ –Chromosomes line up in the middle (aka equator) –Spindle fibers run from __________ to __________ of the chromosomes

8 Mitosis - Anaphase (hint “a” = away) –__________ split –Spindles retract and pull sister __________ apart –Chromosomes move to __________ poles (toward centrioles)

9 Mitosis - Telophase –Chromosomes cluster at __________ –Chromosomes uncoil back into __________ –Nuclear envelope reforms around each new _____ –Mitosis is done –Cell __________ begins to pinch in the middle

10 Cytokinesis Cell membrane moves __________ and pinches in the middle forming two __________ cells In plant cells – a cell __________ (eventually becomes the cell wall) and cell membrane appear separating the 2 new cells There are now 2 identical cells – same DNA, etc.
