The Cell Cycle

Stages from a cell's birth to death. It goes through many processes and along the way it multiplies asexually.

Interphase

The resting phase after Mitosis. Basically when a cell's nucleus successfully divides itself.

Prophase

First stage in Mitosis or cellular division in which a cell starts to divide itself. During this stage the envelope holding the nucleus slowly subsides.

Metaphase

After a successful prophase the chromosomes attach themselves to the spindle fibers.

Anaphase

Third stage in cellular division. The nuclei of the cell slowly move apart from each other inside of the cell.

Telophase

Final stage in cellular division. The nuclei of the cell are completely formed and they begin to separate inside of the cell.

Telomeres

Protein structures at the end of each Chromosome. They end the DNA strand and decide whether or whether not to unravel the strands.

Cancer

Process in which cellular division occurs too rapidly. Can be fatal and can occur in multiple parts of the body.
