1 of 5
- Chromosmes line up on the equator of the cell.
- A spindle made of protein is organised by the centrioles.
- Chromosomes are attached to the spindle by the centromere.
2 of 5
- Chromatids break apart at the centromere.
- They are then pulled to the poles by the spindle.

- Nuclear envelope reforms around each group of chromosomes.
- The chromatids uncoil.
- New nucleoli form in each nucleus.

- Cytoplasm near the equator tucks inwards.
- Splitting the cytoplasm.
