Chapter 11

Cell division is the division of a cell into two daughter cells with the same genetic material.

Interphase is the resting phase between successive mitotic divisions of a cell.

Prophase is the first stage of cell division, in which the chromosomes become visible as paired chromatids and the nuclear envelope disappears.

Metaphase is the second stage of cell division. It is between prophase and anaphase, during which the chromosomes become attached to the spindle fibers.

Anaphase is the stage of cell division in which the chromosomes move away from each other. This happens so that they can move from poles to spindles.

Telophase is the final phase of cell division, in which the chromatids or chromosomes move to opposite ends of the cell and two nuclei.

Telomeres is the compound structure at the end of a chromosome.

Cancer is the disease in which it is caused by an uncontrolled division of abnormal cells in a certain part of body.
