Lesson 14b: Mitosis
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!
the original fertilized egg has to divide…
die or are lost
G1 = Resting and Growth
S = DNA is replicated
G2 = Growth & Prep
M = Mitosis (cell division)
Coil DNA into compact chromosomes
Copying DNARemember this?
Single DNA strand
Single DNA strand being duplicated
Two new DNA strands linked by centromere
making one doubled chromosome.
nucleusCell Prepares to Divide
chromosomes are duplicated
Centromeres link chromosomes
4 single-stranded chromosomes
4 duplicated chromosomes
DNA is copied!
Chromosomes are condensed!
are lined up!
