Storyboard Text

  • THE G2 PHASE GIVES TIME FOR ORGANELLES AND MOLECULES IN THE CELL TO PREPARE FOR CELL REPRODUCTION
  • Whoa, where am I?
  • IN PROPHASE, THE GENETIC MATERIAL IN THE NUCLEUS CONDENSES AND THE DUPLICATED CHROMOSOMES BECOME VISIBLE
  • THE PROCESS OF CELL REPRODUCTION IS KNOWN AS "THE CELL CYCLE"
  • IN METAPHASE, THE CENTROMERES OF THE DUPLICATED CHROMOSOMES LINE UP WITH THE CENTROMERE. THEN SPINDLE FIBERS CONNECT THE CENTROMERE OF EACH CHROMOSOME TO THE 2 POLES OF THE SPINDLE
  • THE CELL CYCLE BEGINS WITH THE GROWTH PHASE, ALSO KNOWN AS THE "G1" PHASE
  • DURING THIS PHASE THE CELL GROWS UNTIL IT IS CAPABLE OF REPRODUCING
  • IN THIS PHASE THE DNA OF THE CELL IS REPLICATED INTO 2 SETS OF DNA FOR EACH DAUGHTER CELL
  • ONCE THAT IS OVER WITH, THE S PHASE BEGINS.
  • NEXT IS THE G2 PHASE
  • MITOSIS IS SPLIT INTO 4 DIFFERENT PHASES, PROPHASE, METAPHASE, ANAPHASE, AND TELOPHASE
  • AND NOW WE GET TO THE PROCESS OF CELL REPRODUCTION: MITOSIS
  • IN ANAPHASE, THE CHROMOSOMES SEPARATE AND MOVE TO OPPOSITE SIDES OF THE CELL
  • LASTLY, TELOPHASE, WHERE THE CHROMOSOMES BEGIN TO SPREAD OUT IN A TANGLE OF CHROMATIN. A NUCLEOLUS THEN BECOMES VISIBLE IN EACH DAUGHTER CELL
  • Wow! That was a lot to take in, but I think I got most of it.
  • So in Prophase, the chromosomes become visible. In Metaphase, the centromeres are connected to the spindle. In Anaphase, the chromosomes move to the opposite sides of the cell, and in Telophase, a nucleolus becomes visible in each daughter cell.
  • Thats Awesome! Now how do I get back home...?
