The Cell Cycle, Cellular Growth, and Cancer


1. Which of the following does not use the cell cycle to divide its cells? -> Meatballs
2. Which phase is not a part of interphase? -> G0 phase
3. Meiosis is -> the phase of the cell cycle where two identical daughter cells are created
4. What is the main difference between metaphase in mitosis and metaphase I in meiosis? -> The homologous chromosomes pair in metaphase I, but not in metaphase II.
5. In what cellular stage/process is it important for homologous chromosomes to pair? -> M phase
6. A diploid organism has 8 chromosomes in G1. How many chromosomes will each of the cells have after it undergoes mitosis? -> 2
7. During what stage of mitosis do sister chromatids remain together despite the separation of homologous chromosomes? -> Telophase II
8. Which of the following mitotic events comes last? -> None of the above happens in mitosis
9. The key players controlling cell cycle progression are -> proteins
10. Cancer is best described as -> a disease of the cell cycle
