Mitosis & Cytokinesis:

1.        Chromosomes appear in which stage?



2.        In the video, how many chromosomes did the cell begin within prophase?



3.        In the video, how many chromosomes did the two new cells end with after anaphase?


DNA Replication Fork:

1.        What unwinds the double stranded DNA helix?

Helicase enzyme


2.        In what direction (3’ or 5’) can nucleotides only be added?



3.        What is the difference between the leading strand and lagging strand?

Lagging strand is more complex

Leading strand
