Storyboard Text

  • My kitten just grew into a cat how did that happen?
  • It's called the cell cycle- here lets take a look..
  • The cell cycle begins with Interphase - the cells are performing normal life activities but the cells also start to grow and the DNA duplicates.
  • What does cell division have to do with growth?
  • The cell starts the process of Mitosis and continues with the Prophase- The chromosomes form which are two chromatids that are held together by a centromere. The membrane around the nucleus starts to disappear and the spindle fibers from the centrioles start to stretch across the cell.
  • Interesting- I never knew that.
  • Ohh so I'm going through the cell cycle.
  • Yes.
  • Next is metaphase during metaphase the chromosomes line up in the middle of the cell. And the spindle fibers attach to the centromere of the chromosome.
  • Is this a continuous cycle?
  • This next step is Anaphase. During anaphase the chromatids of each chromosome separate into separate chromosomes and are pulled to opposite sides of the cell.
  • Indeed.
  • I know it's so interesting!
  • Meow!
  • We are almost done with the process! We are at Telophase where the nuclear membrane forms around each group of chromosomes. The DNA hen returns to loose strands of mass and the cell membrane begins to pinch.
  • I heard there was a part where the cell duplicates and instead of 1 there are 2 cells. When does that happen?
  • Next step!
  • I'm getting bored now, thank goodness its almost over.
  • This is the last stage called Cytokinesis this is when the cytoplasm splits- the final product is two new genetically identical daughter cells.
  • Cell membrane
  • Well yes, that's what they are called and the original cell is called the parent cell.
  • Spindle fibers
  • DNA
  • Nucleic membrane
  • Centrioles
  • Daughter cells?!?
