Cell Cycle cell cycle - 5 phases G1 – primary growth phase of cell o includes major part of a cell’s life for most organisms S - phase where genome is replicated G2 - 2nd growth phase; preparations made for separation of genomes o organelles replicate, chromosomes condense, microtubules assemble interphase - collective name for G1, S, G2 phases M (mitosis) - phase where microtubules pull sister chromatids apart o divided into prophase, metaphase, anaphase, telophase C (cytokinesis) - cytoplasm divides, forms 2 daughter cells o actin acts as drawstring to pinch animal cells in 2 o plate forms between dividing cells w/ cell walls embryonic cells have shortest cell cycles G0 phase - resting state before DNA replication o most cells in body are in this state at any given time o neurons/muscle cells never leave this phase after maturing interphase - prepares for mitosis major portion of growth during G1 phase
