Mitosis

Notes and simple pictures showing the main stages of Mitosis:

  • Interphase
  • Prophase
  • Metaphase
  • Anaphase
  • Telophase
  • Cytokinesis

I remember the stages using this mnemonic, which is so silly that it just sticks in my head... Innocent PowerMen Are Too Cool :)

Does anyone know any others?

THE CELL CYCLE Mitosis
CELL CYCLE DIAGRAM

INTERPHASE
G1 phase:
o Growth
o New organelles made
o Protein synthesis
S phase:
o DNA synthesis & replication
G2 phase
o Growth
o More protein synthesis
o Further organelles made


PROPHASE
Chromosomes shorten and thicken
Centrioles move to opposite ends of the…
