Cell Division

Hint #1: Look at the words below from 2009.

Hint#2: See these questions below right from test.


The cell cycle is cell division plus interphase.  
Chromatin is DNA plus protein.
 All human cells except the sperm and egg have 48 chromosomes.
 Centrioles move to the poles of the cells in mitosis and spindle fibers attach the chromosomes to the centrioles.
During mitosis a human cell has 92 chromosomes.
