Cell Cycle

Hayley Quinn 2nd Hour

Step 1 : Interphase

During this step the cell grows 2 times its normal size, the cell carries out normal activities, it is not dividing, DNA is copied, the DNA is in strands, and this is the longest part of the process.
Organelles present in this stage : Nucleus, nuclear membrane, DNA, centrioles, and spindle fibers.

Step 2 : Prophase

In this stage Mitosis begins and Mitosis is the moving of the DNA and other materials in the parent cell into position for cell divison. In this stage in the nucleus DNA forms chromosomes, and the nuclear membrane disappears.
Organelles present in this stage : Nucleus, nuclear membrane, DNA, centrioles, and spindle fibers.

Step 3 : Metaphase

In this phase Mitosis continues, chromosomes line up in the middle of the cell, and spindle fibers from centrioles attach to chromosomes.
Organelles present in this stage : DNA, centrioles, and spindle fibers.

Step 4 : Anaphase

In this phase the chomosomes separate and start becoming two daughter cells. Each of the halfs are pulled to the opposite ends. This is one of the last steps before it becomes two daughter cells
Organelles present in this stage : DNA, centrioles, and spindle fibers.

Step 5 : Telophase

In this stage mitosis is finished. A new nuclear membrane forms around each groups of chromosomes. The DNA has now been completed by the end of this stage.
Organelles present in this stage : DNA, centrioles, and spindle fibers.

Step 6 : Cytokinesis

Lastly we have the Cytokinesis phase, this is where the parent cell's are split into two and split between the two daughter cells. The cell is pinched into two. This is where the cytoplasm is split into two so that the daughter cells can have cytoplasm.
Organelles present in this stage : Nucleus, nuclear membrane, DNA, centrioles, and spindle fibers.
