    B) an animal cell in telophase 

    C) an animal cell undergoing cytokinesis

    Taxol is an anticancer drug extracted from the Pacific yew tree. In animal cells, taxol disrupts microtubule formation by binding to microtubules and accelerating their assembly from the protein precursor, tubulin. Surprisingly, this stops mitosis. Specifically, taxol must affect 

    A) the fibers of the mitotic spindle. 

    B) anaphase. 

    C) formation of the centrioles. 

    D) chromatid assembly. 

    E) the S phase of the cell cycle. 



    A) the fibers of the mitotic spindle.

    Regarding mitosis and cytokinesis, one difference between higher plants and animals is that in plants?

    A) the spindles contain microfibrils in addition to microtubules, whereas animal spindles do not contain microfibrils.
    B) sister chromatids are identical, but they differ from one another in animals.
    C) a cell plate begins to form at telophase, whereas animals a cleavage furrow is initiated at that stage.
    D) chromosomes become attached to the spindle at prophase, whereas in animals chromosomes do not become attached until anaphase.
    E) spindle poles contain centrioles, whereas spindle poles in animals do not.
    C) a cell plate begins to form at telophase, whereas animals a cleavage furrow is initiated at that stage.
