Who are the three principle gods in Hinduism and what do they stand for?
1. Brahma: Supreme presence and creator of the universe, all other gods come from him, considered to be the wise overlord of Hinduism. 2. Vishnu: Preserver the universe, maintains the balance between good and evil powers through conserving cosmic order (upholding duties, rights, laws, conduct, and virtues to yourself, others, and the universe) and karma/causality (good things happen to those who do good, and bad things happen to those who do evil). 3. Shiva: Destroyer and transformer of the universe, also known as the purifier of the universe (destroys bad habits, egotistical viewpoints, evil thinking, etc) and represents the circle of life through death, birth, and rebirth (reincarnation).
Name the correct order of phases cells go through when dividing by mitosis. Include what happens in each phase.
Phase 1- Interphase: Everything in the cell duplicates, the DNA which was loose and uncoiled forms into chromosomes which thicken and coil. Phase 2- Prophase: Chromosomes become more compact, centrioles move apart to opposite poles and form spindle fibers, the nuclear membrane surrounding the chromosomes disappears. Phase 3- Metaphase: The copied chromosomes form a line in the middle of the cell and are ready to be pulled apart by the spindle fibers that are now attaching to the centromeres of the chromosomes. Phase 4- Anaphase: The spindle fibers start to pull apart sister chromatids to opposite poles to form two genetically identical groups, the cell membrane begins to pinch at the center of the cell. Phase 5- Telophase: Nuclear membranes form around the two groups of identical chromatids, spindle fibers disappear, the cell membrane further pinches at the center. Phase 6- Cytokinesis: Two identical daughter cells form with the cell membrane pinching all the way through.
