The Cell Cycle Coloring Worksheet. Label the diagram below with the following labels:

  • Anaphase
  • Interphase
  • Mitosis
  • Cell division (M Phase)
  • Interphase
  • Prophase
  • Cytokinesis
  • Interphase
  • S-DNA replication

  • G2 – prepares for mitosis
mitosis practice question and answer

Label the parts of the cell cycle diagram and briefly describe what is happening:

  • Interphase – cell is growing and preparing for division.
  • G1 – growth and normal cell function
  • S – DNA replication
  • G2 – growth, preparation for division, duplicate organelles
  • Prophase – nuclear envelope dissolves, mitotic apparatus set up, DNA condenses.
  • Anaphase – sister chromatids separate and are pulled to poles of cell.
  • Metaphase – chromosome line up in center
  • Mitosis – nuclear division
  • Telophase – nuclei reform, DNA relaxes into chromatin, cleaveage furrow or cell plate forms
  • Cytokinesis – the rest of the cell divides

Reading test, short answer, fill in the blanks

true or false and multiple choice

Write true if the statement is true or false if the statement is false.

  1. Cell division is basically the same in prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells.
  2. Cytokinesis is the division of the cytoplasm.
  3. Mitosis is the process in which the nucleus of the cell divides.
  4. DNA replication results in identical chromosomes.
  5. A cell spends most of its life in growth phase 1 of the cell cycle.
  6. The S checkpoint, just before entry into S phase, makes the key decision of whether the cell should divide.
  7. The correct order of phases of the cell cycle is G1 → S → G2 → M.
  8. Interphase consists of mitosis and cytokinesis.
  9. In prokaryotic cells, all organelles, such as the Golgi apparatus and endoplasmic reticulum, divide prior to cell division.
  10. Bacteria divide cells by binary fusion.
  11. A mass of abnormal cells is called a tumor.
  12. Organelles are made during growth phase 2.
  13. In eukaryotic cells, DNA is replicated during the S phase of the cell cycle.
  14. If the cell cycle is not regulated, cancer may develop.
  15. Mitosis occurs in both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells

Mitosis and asexual reproduction require one parent. Label the following diagram of mitosis of an animal cell.
