Cell Cycle: Cell Cycle The cell cycle is the series of events that cells go through as they grow and divide. Cell cycle consists of 2 phases- Interphase M phase
Interphase: Interphase Interphase is the phase the a cell spends most of its life in. Interphase is divided into 3 stages- G1 phase- stage where cells do most of there growing. S phase- this is where chromosomes are replicated; a.k.a DNA synthesis. G2 phase- shortest of the 3 phases. Many of the organelles and molecules required for the cell division are produced.
M phase : M phase Is consisted of 2 phases- Mitosis (nuclear division)- is consisted of 4 phases- Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, Telophase. Cytokinesis (cytoplasmic division)- after mitosis is over the cell goes into cytokinesis, where the cell is pinched into nearly to equal parts.
