mitosis produces 2 cells which are genetically identical to the parent cell.

the cells produced are diploid.

I- interphase

P- phrophase

M- metaphase

A- anaphase

T- teleophase

C- cytokenisis

Interphase- DNA doubles, chromosomes replicate forming 2 chormatids. lots of metabollic activity(energy used is in the form of ATP). the choromosomes arent visible because the chromosomes material, chromatin is spread throughout the nucles.

phrophase- occurs when the chromosomes shorten and thicken. at this point they consist of a pair of sister chromatids. the two daughter centrioles begin to move around the cell.

metaphase- the chromosomes move to the equator and alighn themselves. each chromosome becomes attached to the spindle thread…
