  • 1. Cell DivisionAll cells are derived from pre- existing cellsNew cells are produced for growth and to replace damaged or old cellsDiffers in prokaryotes (bacteria) and eukaryotes (protists, fungi, plants, & animals) 2
  • 2. Keeping Cells IdenticalThe instructions for making cell parts are encoded in the DNA, so each new cell must get a complete set of the DNA molecules 3
  • 3. DNA Replication DNA must be copied or replicated before cell division, Original DNA DNA is untwisted and strand separate. Every nitrogenous bases on the strands will pair up with its suitable base that floats in the nucleus. Each new cell will then have an identical copy of the DNA Two new, identical DNA strands
  • 4. DNA ShapeDouble helix: 2 spirals wound around each other But joined in the middle
  • 5. What’s Happening in Interphase?What the cell looks like Animal CellWhat’s occurring 6
  • 6. Mitosis 7
  • 7. Chromosomes in Dividing CellsDuplicated chromosomes are called chromatids & are held together by the centromere Called Sister Chromatids
  • 8. Four Mitotic StagesProphaseMetaphaseAnaphaseTelophase 9
  • 9. Mitosis• Prophase: • Chromosomes condense • Nuclear envelope disappears • centrosomes move to opposite sides of the cell • Spindle forms and attaches to centromeres on the chromosomes• Metaphase • Chromosomes lined up on equator of spindle • centrosomes at opposite ends of cell• Anaphase • Centromeres divide: each 2-chromatid chromosome becomes two 1-chromatid chromosomes • Chromosomes pulled to opposite poles by the spindle• Telophase • Chromosomes de-condense • Nuclear envelope reappears • Cytokinesis: the cytoplasm is divided into 2 cells
  • 10. Cytokinesis Means division of the cytoplasm Division of cell into two, identical halves called daughter cells. In plant cells, cell plate forms at the equator to divide cell. In animal cells, cleavage furrow forms to split cell 11
  • 11. CytokinesisCleavage furrow Cell plate in in animal cell animal cell 12
