    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.

    A mutation results in a cell that no longer produces a 

    normal protein kinase for the M phase checkpoint. Which of the following would likely be the immediate result of this mutation? 

    A) The cell would prematurely enter anaphase. 

    B) The cell would never leave metaphase. 

    C) The cell would never enter metaphase. 

    D) The cell would never enter prophase. 

    E) The cell would undergo normal mitosis, but fail to enter the next G1 phase. 



    E) The cell would undergo normal mitosis, but fail to enter the next G1 phase.


    The correct answer should be B) The cell would never leave metaphase.
    The M-Phase checkpoint, when passed, triggers the start of anaphase. If the checkpoint fails then there can be no anaphase, meaning that E is incorrect.
