MITOSIS

Questions and Records:


1. The cellulose walls of plant cells are held together by
compounds in the middle lamella. Treatment with
hydrochloric acid breaks these down. Why is this helpful
in your preparation?
Because the hydrochloric acid breaks the compounds in the
middle of lamella. This breaks the cellulose walls of the plant
cell making it easier to see cell division in the cells of the inside.
2. Which part, or parts, of the cells have taken up the
stain? Are there cells present, in which the
chromosomes are not condensed? If yes, why is this?
The cell wall and the chromosomes take up the stain, to be able
to see them. Yes there are cells present, in which the
chromosomes are not condensed because they simple are not
in the stage of cell division. This might be because they are new
cells or they are in the growing and specializing part of their
lives.
