The Cell Cycle, Cellular Growth, and Cancer: Moses Supposes His Mitosis...Is Functioning Properly Quiz
Think you’ve got your head wrapped around The Cell Cycle, Cellular Growth, and Cancer? Put your knowledge to
the test. Good luck — the Stickman is counting on you!
Q. Which of the following does not use the cell cycle to divide its cells?
Q. Which phase is not a part of interphase?
Both (A) and (B)
Q. Meiosis is
a part of interphase
the phase of the cell cycle where DNA replication occurs
the phase of the cell cycle where two identical daughter cells are created
a special "resting" phase
a special phase where the number of chromosomes in a parent cell is reduced by half, such that each daughter cell contains only one member of a pair of homologous chromosomes
Q. What is the main difference between metaphase in mitosis and metaphase I in meiosis?
The homologous chromosome pairs align in metaphase I, while they don't in metaphase of mitosis.
The sister chromatids align in metaphase I, while they don't in metaphase of mitosis.
There isn't a difference except that one is mitosis and one is meiosis.
The homologous chromosomes align in metaphase of mitosis, but not in metaphase I of meiosis.
The homologous chromosomes pair in metaphase I, but not in metaphase II.
Q. In what cellular stage/process is it important for homologous chromosomes to pair?
Q. A diploid organism has 8 chromosomes in G1. How many chromosomes will each of the cells have after it undergoes mitosis?
Q. During what stage of mitosis do sister chromatids remain together despite the separation of homologous chromosomes?
Q. Which of the following mitotic events comes last?
Breakdown of the nuclear envelope
Attachment of chromatids to the mitotic spindle
Formation of the mitotic spindle
None of the above happens in mitosis
Q. The key players controlling cell cycle progression are
Q. Cancer is best described as
a disease of the cell cycle
a disease of cell growth and cell cycle checkpoints
a purely inherited disease
a disease that is only caused by infection by viruses
a disease caused by mutations in cyclin
