Mitosis
Stage Diagram
Interphase:
DNA unravels and replicates
Organelles replicate
ATP content is increased
Prophase:
Chromosome condense
Centrioles move to opposite ends of the
cell forming spindle fibres
Nuclear envelope breaks down and
chromosome lie freely in the cytoplasm
Metaphase:
Chromosome line up along the spindle
equator and become attached to the
spindle by their centromere
Anaphase:
Centromeres divide, separating each
pair of sister chromatids
Spindles contract, pulling chromatids
towards opposite ends of the cell
Telophase:
Chromatids reach opposite poles on the
spindle
Chromatids uncoil…read more
