  • Mitosis
    • Process
      • Interphase - cell does not divide, DNA replicates
        • Prophase - Chromosomes are visible, nuclear envelope disappears + chromosomes condense
          • Metaphase - Chromosomes arrange at centre of cell + spindle fibres attach to centromere
            • Anaphase - spindle fibres shorten and pull chromosome apart - chromatids at different poles
              • Telophase - Chromosomes elongate + nuclear envelope reforms
    • Key facts
      • Used for growth, repair and division of specialised cells for specialised tissue
      • Produces two daughter cells
      • Produces diploid cells - contain same amount of chromosomes as parent
      • Is genetically identical to parent cell
      • Process of nuclear division
      • Homologous chromosomes behave independently
