One way to predict which tissue culture cell in a population is about to divide is to watch for a cell that is no longer spread on the culture chamber surface and is forming a sphere. NOTE: Using this CAM, compare the length of time a cancer cell spends in interphase to that for mitosis to occur in its cell cycle.

 

Clicking on the decrement and increment buttons above allows you to view any previous frame in the sequence.
