CELL CYCLE -is vital for growth; for repair and replacement of damaged or worn out cells; and for asexual reproduction -An orderly set of stages that take place between the time a eukaryotic cell divides and its daughter cells divide - DNA replication occurs

CELL CYCLE - The life cycle of eukaryotic cells, or cells containing a nucleus, is a continuous process typically divided into three phases for ease of understanding: INTERPHASE, MITOSIS, and CYTOKINESIS

CELL CYCLE INTERPHASE -Where most of the cell cycle is spent -A time when the cell performs its usual functions, depending on the location in the body + G0 stage – stage wherein cells to not complete the cell cycle and is in permanent arrest

CELL CYCLE G1 STAGE -Stage before DNA replication -The cell doubles its organelles (mitochondria and ribosomes) and accumulates materials for DNA synthesis

CELL CYCLE S STAGE -DNA synthesis/replication occurs resulting in duplicated chromosomes -At the beginning, each chromosome is composed of ONE DNA double helix (CHROMATID) -At the end, each chromosome has two identical double helix molecules

CELL CYCLE G2 STAGE -Stage from the completion of DNA replication to the onset of mitosis -The cell synthesizes protein that will assist in cell division

CELL CYCLE MITOTIC STAGE -process in which a cell’s nucleus replicates and divides in preparation for division of the cell -results in two cells that are genetically identical -Occurs in 5 steps: PROPHASE, PROMETAPHASE, METAPHASE, ANAPHASE, and TELOPHASE

CELL CYCLE Prophase -the replicated, linked DNA strands slowly wrap around proteins that coil and condense into two short, thick, rod-like structures called chromatids, attached by the centromere -Two structures called centrioles, both located on one side of the nucleus, separate and move toward opposite poles of the cell

CELL CYCLE Prophase -As the centrioles move apart, they begin to radiate thin, hollow, proteins called microtubules -The microtubules arrange themselves in the shape of a football or spindle that spans the area of the cell

CELL CYCLE Prometaphase -marked by the disintegration of the nuclear membrane -As the spindle forms, the nuclear membrane breaks down into tiny sacs or vesicles that are dispersed in the cytoplasm

CELL CYCLE Prometaphase -The spindle fibers attach to the chromatids near the centromeres, and tug and push the chromatids so that they line up in the equatorial plane of the cell halfway between the poles -one chromatid faces one pole of the cell, and its linked partner faces the opposite pole

CELL CYCLE Metaphase -exactly half of the chromatids face one pole, and the other half face the other pole = METAPHASE PLATE

CELL CYCLE Anaphase -begins when the centromeres split, separating the identical chromatids into single chromosomes, which then move along the spindle fibers to opposite poles of the cell -At the end, two identical groups of single chromosomes congregate at opposite poles of the cell

CELL CYCLE Telophase -The final stage of mitosis -a new nuclear membrane forms around each new group of chromosomes -The spindle fibers break down and the newly formed chromosomes begin to unwind

CELL CYCLE CYTOKINETIC STAGE -final phase of the cell cycle -The timing of cytokinesis varies depending on the cell type -the cell’s cytoplasm separates in half, with each half containing one nucleus -Two identical daughter cells are produced
