The cell cycle is the series of events that take place in the cell leading up to its division and duplication of DNA.
There are many stages of the cell cycle like interphase, prophase, metaphase, anaphase and telophase
Interphase is a step of the cell cycle in which most cells spend most of their life
During this process the cell copies its DNA in preparation for mitosis
Prophase is the first step of cell division that comes before metaphase
During this phase the chromosomes become visible as parked chromatids and the nuclear envelope disappears.
The second stage of cell division where the chromosomes become attached to spindle fibers.
During metaphase the chromosomes carrying genetic information align with the equator of the cell and are separated into two danger cells.
The stage of cell division in which chromosomes move away from one another to opposite sides of the spindle
Chromosomes reach their overall maximum condensation in anaphase to help the grouping of chromosomes and the reformation of the nucleus
The final phase of cell division or the cell cycle
In this stage the chromosomes move to opposite ends of the cell and two nuclei are formed
During telophase the duplicated genetic material is separated and sent from the parent cell into the two daughter cells
Telomeres are the areas of repetitive nucleotide sequences at the end of each chromosome
The telomeres protect the chromosome from things like deterioration or from fusion with neighboring chromosomes
Cancer is a group of diseases involving abnormal cell growth and has the potential to invade or spread to other parts of the body.
