The Cell Cycle

Cell cycle: a series of events from the time a cell forms until its cytoplasm divides


A typical cell spends most of its life in interphase. Which is between division and cell growth. There are 3 stages in interphasep, G1, S, G2.


Prophase is the first stage of mitosis. Towards the end of prophase the nuclear envelope breaks up and the sister chromatids are attached to opposite centrosomes.


Metaphase-all chromosomes are aligned midway between spindle poles


Anaphase: sister chromatids separate and move toward opposite spindle poles


Telophase: chromosomes arrive at opposite spindle poles and decondense; two new nuclei form.


Telomeres are noncoding repeat DNA sequences (repeated thousands of times) found at the ends of eukaryotic chromosomes.


Cancer- disease that occurs when a malignant neoplasm physically and metabolically disrupts body tissues
