2.5 Cell Division

The eukaryotic cell cycle

Mitosis: Division of the nucleus

Interphase: (90%) Has three subphases called G1, S and G2

G1: (Transcription- translation or protein synthesis) Cellis preparing for S phase, each chromosome is a single

S: DNA replication, there are now two sister chromatids

G2: The cell makes preparation for mitosis

Chromatin: DNA and Histone ] Nucleosome

Two“legs”: Sister chromatids


Is the division of a eukaryotic nucleus into two genetically identical nuclei.

The four phases of mitosis are:

1) Prophase
2) Metaphase
3) Anaphase
4) TelophaseProphase

The chromatin coils and supercoils, become more and more compact, condensing into visible chromosomes. The chromosomes consist of identical, paired sister chromatids.

The nucleus envelopebreaks down. Kinetochore microtubes appear and connect the metochores to the poles.


Spindle microtubes attach to the centromeres. Chromosomes are moved to the equator of the cell.Anaphase:

Chromatids separate and the spindle microtubes pull them towards the poles of the cell.


Daughter chromosomes reach the poles. As telophase concludes, the nuclear envelops and nucleolireform, chromatin becomes diffuse, and the cell again enters interphase.

Metaphase--------------------------------------------------------------2.5.2 Cancer

Certain agents can damage these regulatory elements. Examples of such agents include: ultraviolet light, chemicals called “carcinogens” or viruses. When this happens , uncontrolled celldivision can occur resulting in the formation of tumor.

2.5.3 Interphase

These transitions from G1 to S and from G2 to M depend on the activations of a type of protein called cyclin-dependent kinaseor cdk is enzyme that catalyzes the transfer of a phosphate group from ATP to another molecule, this phosphate transfer is called phosphorylation.
