Cell division

What happens to the DNA in cells prior to cell division???

Thanks, Mara

the dna replicates and condences, all the chromatids align on the equator, then the sister chromatids separate into chromosomes and then the cell divides

A phase known as interphase.

@starstruck17
From what you said, only the replication of DNA occurs in interphase, the rest occur during cell division..

Cell division

prophase-DNA condenses into two sister chromatids and nuclear membrane disintegrates
Metaphase-DNA lines up on the equator of the cell and attatched to spindle
Anaphase-Sister chromatids pulled apart and travel to opposite ends of the cell
Telophase-DNA uncoils and and nuclear membranes form around both sets of DNA and shortly after Cytokinesis occurs

correct? if not let me know

A very good summary... For details read a book :)

regulation of the cell cycle is far more interesting :roll:

Agreed. But not everyone would find it that way. Also there are few countries that study all those kinases etc at the cell cycle in high-school. It is good to start with babysteps...
