Chapter 11 By: Joshua Muroff

The Cell Cycle is a very intricate process. It is the series of events that take place in the cell leading up to the process of division and duplication of DNA. Then it produces two daughter cells.

This is the resting phase between the miotic divisions or it is between the first and second division of meiosis.

Prophase is the phase before metaphase. It is the first stage of cell division. During this the chromosomes become visible as double/paired chromatids. Then the nuclear envelope disappears. This also includes the reduction divison.

Now Metaphase is the second stage of the cell's division process. It is located between prophase and Anapahse. During this the chromosomes become attached to the spindle fibers.

Anaphase is when in the meiotic process the chromosomes move apart from one another to opposite ends of the spindle.

This is the final phase of cell divison it is called telophase. In this the two chromatids move completely to opposite sides of the cell and two nuclei are formed.

A telomere is the area that controls the repetition of nucleotide sequences at the end of each chromosomes. This protects the chromosome from binding with neighboring chromosomes.

Cancer is the uncontrolled divison of foreign cells in a person's body that can kill them because it is a disease.
