Lesson 14b: Mitosis

Biology is the only subject in which multiplication is the same thing as division…

Making New CellsMaking New DNA

Where it all began…

You start as a cell smaller than a period at the end of a sentence…

And end up as a full grown adult with billions of cells!

Getting from there to here…

  • Going from egg to baby….

    the original fertilized egg has to divide…

    and divide…

    and divide…

    and divide…

Why do cells divide…

  • for reproduction

    • one celled organisms (clones)

  • for growth & development

    • fromfertilized eggto multi-celled organism

  • for repair

    • replace cells that

      die or are lost


The Cell Cycle

G1 = Resting and Growth

S = DNA is replicated

G2 = Growth & Prep

for Mitosis

M = Mitosis (cell division)

Dividing cells…

  • What has to be copied

    • DNA

    • organelles

    • cell membrane

    • lots of othermolecules

      • enzymes

plant cell

animal cell

Coil DNA into compact chromosomes

Copying DNA

Remember this?

  • When a cell is ready to divide it must…

    • copy DNA first (DNA Replication), then…

    • coil up doubled chromosomes like thread on a spool…

      • now can move DNA around cell without having it tangle & break

Copied & Paired Up Chromosomes

Single DNA strand

Single DNA strand being duplicated


Two new DNA strands linked by centromere

making one doubled chromosome.

Cell Prepares to Divide

chromosomes are duplicated

Centromeres link chromosomes

4 single-stranded chromosomes

Mitosis: Dividing DNA & Cells

  • Stage 1: DNA Replication occurs.


DNA is copied!




Mitosis: Dividing DNA & cells

  • Stage 2: DNA winds into chromosomes

Chromosomes are condensed!

duplicated chromosomes




Mitosis: Dividing DNA & cells

  • Stage 3: Chromosomes line up in middle

    • attached to protein spindle fibers that will pull them apart.


are lined up!


Mitosis: Dividing DNA & cells

  • Stage 4: Chromosomes separate

    • chromosomes split, separating the pairs

    • start moving to opposite ends (poles)

Chromosomesare separated!


Mitosis: Dividing DNA & cells

  • Stage 5: Cytokinesis

    • cells start to divide

    • nucleus forms again

Cells Divide!


New “daughter” cell CLONES

  • Get 2 exact copies of original cells

    • same DNA

    • “clones”
