Concept

Problem: A particular cell has half as much DNA as some other cells in a mitotically active tissue. The cell in question is most likely inA) G1B) G2C) prophaseD) metaphase

FREE Expert Solution

Interphase: composed of G1, S, and G2 phase; occurs before mitosis

G1: Cell metabolically active; duplicates organelles and cytosolic components; centrosome replication begins.

S: DNA replication

G2: Cell growth continues; enzymes and other proteins are synthesized; centrosome replication completed.
