Hi everyone! Today in class we were going to learn about the cell cycle! The first part of the cycle is interphase! In interphase the cell carries out its normal life functions, and at the end, the DNA in the nucleus is duplicated!
The next part of the cycle is called mitosis. Mitosis is split up into 4 parts! The first part of mitosis is called prophase. In prophase, the DNA forms into condensed chromosomes, spindle fibers stretch across the cell, and the nuclear membrane disappears.
The next part of the cycle is metaphase. In metaphase the chromosomes line up in the middle of the cell and the spindle fibers attach to the chromosomes.
After metaphase there is anaphase. In anaphase the chromosomes separate and are being pulled to opposite sides of the cell.
Next there is telophase. In telophase the nuclear membrane reforms around the chromosomes, and the chromosomes return to strands. After this the cell membrane starts to pinch.
Lastly, there is cytokinesis. This is when the cytoplasm splits and becomes 2 separate daughter cells! The cells are identical.
