What is the longest phase of a cell cycle interphase or mitosis?
Interphase is the longest stage. Most cells remain in this stage, sometimes for the life of the cell.
If you're talking about which phase of mitosis takes longest (as in, Interphase, Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase or Telophase) then Interphase is by far the longest, taking up as much as 90% of the cycle. Or if you mean which phase of the cell life cycle (as in, G1, synthesis, G2, M phase/mitosis) then G1 is the longest stage.
The cell cycle the life cycle of a cell. Mitosis is a small part of the cell cycle. Interphase is the first phase of the cell cycle. There are three sections within interphase; G1 (Growth Phase 1), S (Synthesis Stage) and G2 (Growth Phase 2). After interphase comes the mitosis phase with four stages; prophase, metaphase, anaphase and telophase.
The phase of mitosis where the chromatin fibers duplicate and condense into visible chromosomes is the?
interphase Prophase is the longest stage of mitosis,lasting about 20 mn Interphase is the longest phase prophase is the longest of the four phases in mitosis Metaphase is the longest phase of mitosis. During metaphase the tension applied during the mitotic spindle fibres align all of the chromosomes along the metaphase plate ( an imaginary line that divides the cell into two). This organization is necessary to ensure that the next phase when the chromosomes…
In this representation of the cell cycle the red arrow represents mitosis also known as the M phase. Which part of the diagram represents interphase?
<No, s phase is part of interphase.> No, S phase is not a part of interphase, nor is it a phase in mitosis. Interphase is equivalent to G0 (Gzero), in which cells are not actively dividing and have not committed to undergo cell division. The cell cycle is divided into G1, S, G2 and M. G1 and G2 are gap phases in which the cell prepares, metabolically, for the major events occurring in S phase…
