Chapter 4 Section 1

Cell Division and Mitosis


Chapter 4 section 1 cell division and mitosis

  • “life cycle” of a cell

  • series of events that takes place from one cell division to the next

  • no set time for cycle- ranges from minutes to days

  • not only used to make an organism, but also to replace parts in an organism such as skin, bone, blood, etc.

1. The Cell Cycle


Chapter 4 section 1 cell division and mitosis

2. Interphase

  • period of growth and development of most eukaryotic cells (cells with a nucleus)

  • some cells, such as nerve cells and some muscle cells are always in this phase


Chapter 4 section 1 cell division and mitosis

  • Process in which the nucleus divides to form 2 identical nuclei

  • 4 steps:

    • Prophase

    • Metaphase

    • Anaphase

    • Telophase

3. Mitosis


Chapter 4 section 1 cell division and mitosis

4. Chromosome

- structure in the nucleus that contains hereditary material

5. Chromatid

  • A single strand of DNA in the nucleus of a cell

  • 2 chromatids coiled together form a chromosome


Chapter 4 section 1 cell division and mitosis

Steps to Mitosis:

6. Prophase

  • pair of chromosomes are fully visible

  • nucleolus and nuclear membrane disintegrate

  • centrioles move to opposite ends of cells

  • spindle fibers begin to spread across cell

*** Plant cells do not have centrioles.***


Chapter 4 section 1 cell division and mitosis

  • Chromosomes line up along the center of the cell

  • the centromere(center of the chromosome) attach to the spindle fibers, one on each side

7. Metaphase


Chapter 4 section 1 cell division and mitosis

9. Telophase

  • spindle fibers disappear

  • chromatids uncoil

  • new nucleus forms

  • animal cells- cell splits down the middle

  • plants cells- cell plate forms


Chapter 4 section 1 cell division and mitosis

  • Remember:

  • It is the division of the nucleus

  • produces 2 new nuclei that are identical to each other and the original cell

  • every cell in your body, except sex cells, have 46 chromosomes

  • all of these cells have the same set of genetic material (skin, hair, blood, liver cells all have the same nucleus and the same 46 chromosomes)

10. Results of Mitosis:


Chapter 4 section 1 cell division and mitosis

  • a new organism is made from one organism (one parent)

  • offspring will have hereditary material identical to parent (clone)

1. Asexual Reproduction

  • process bacteria uses to reproduce

  • bacteria contains no nucleus so it cannot divide by mitosis

  • copies the genetic material and then the cell splits

2. Fission


Chapter 4 section 1 cell division and mitosis

  • type of asexual reproduction

  • adult will create a bud, which once large enough will break away

3. Budding

  • Process that uses cell division to regrow body parts

  • sponges, planaria, and sea stars can also use this for asexual reproduction

4. regeneration
