2.5 mitosis

  1. 1. JeanMitosis - Surface Area: Volume Ratio; the smaller the ratio is the more efficient - Cell division allows for the growth of an organism by producing more copies of cells- and also allow for more cell differentiation to occur - Mitosis is the division of eukaryotic nucleus, making sure each daughter cell has a full set of chromosomes and is genetically identical to the parent cell - Mitosis can only occur in eukaryotic cells - Each new nucleus is diploid (2n), with a complete set of chromosomes. - Humans have 23(n) chromosomes, Diploid (2n) is 46 - Just before prophase the cell has two copies of chromosomes - Every eukaryotic has genes on chromosomes, storage units of the cell -
