mitosis

HideShow resource information
mitosis
It is a type of nuclear division which gives rise to two genetically identical daughter cell having the same number of chromosomes as the parent cell.
1 of 6
Prophase
Chromosomes become visible due to the coiling of chromatin fibres. The nuclear envelope disintegrates. Centrioles move to opposite poles and start radiating spindle fibres.
2 of 6
Metaphase
The chromatids are attached to the spindle fibres through their centromeres. The spindle fibres contract from both sides and as a result the chromosomes align at the equator.
3 of 6
Anaphase
The centromeres divide into two. The microtubules contract causing individuals chromatids to separate and move to opposite poles.
4 of 6
Telophase
The daughter chromatids reach their respective poles. The spindle fibres disintegrate and the nuclear membrane and nucleolus re form.
5 of 6
Cytokinesis
it is the division of the cytoplasm into two equal parts.
