Chapter 11 By Ryan Tariche

The Cell Cycle is the series of events that take place in a cell leading to its division and duplication of its DNA to produce 2 daughter cells.
Interphase is the resting phase between successive mitotic divisions of a cell, or between the first and second divisions of meiosis.
Prophase is first stage of cell division during which the chromosomes become visible as paired chromatids and the nuclear envelope disappears.
Metaphase is the second stage of cell division during which the chromosomes become attached to the spindle fibers.
Anaphase is the stage of cell division in which the chromosomes move away from one another to opposite poles of the spindle.
Telophase is the final stage of cell division in which the chromatids or chromosomes move to opposite ends of the cell and 2 nuclei are formed.
A telomere is a region of repetitive nucleotide sequences at each end of a chromosome which protects the end of the chromosome from deterioration.
Cancer is a disease in which abnormal cells divide uncontrollably and destroy body tissue.
