The Cycle of Cells, Mitosis Style!

Noah Vonwaldner and Eddy Nieves

Mitosis

Process in which to daughter cells are made

Interphase

All cells spend 90% of their time in the interphase. There are three types of phases in the Interphase: G1, cell growth, S, DNA is replicating, and G2, getting ready for mitosis.

Prophase

The chromatin in the nucleus condenses to form chromosomes; the nucleus disappears and centrioles move to opposite ends of cell.

Metaphase

The Chromosomes line up on the middle of the cell.

Anaphase

The sister chromatids move apart and the centromere divide.

Telophase

There are now two nuclei that have formed. Now the chromosomes change back into chromatin.

Cytokinesis

The cytoplasms separate into two new cells.

Passive Transport

This is the diffusion of molecules without the use of ATP energy.

Osmosis

This is the movement of water molecules from high to low concentration; continues until concentrations reach equilibrium or homeostasis. This is a form of passive transport.

Active Transport

This is the movement of water molecules across the cell membrane using ATP energy.

Protien Transport

This is when protein is embedded in the cell membrane and is responsible for picking molecules from the outside or inside of the cell and carrying them across the cell membrane.

Endocytosis

This is a part of the cell membrane which surrounds materials in a vesicle and carries them into the cell.

Exocytosis

This form of transportation carries materials OUT of the cell to be released.
