  • Q8
    What is one difference between the G1 phase and the G2 phase?
    In the G1 phase the nuclear membrane breaks down and in the G2 phase the nuclear membrane reforms.
    In the G1 phase chromosomes are separated and in the G2 phase they are still together.
    In the G1 phase the cell is growing and in the G2 phase the cell has stopped growing.
    In the G1 phase DNA has not been replicated and in the G2 phase DNA has been replicated.
