Stages of Mitosis

By Garrett Miller

Interphase

Chromosomes duplicate and the copies remain attached to eachother

Prophase

In the nucleaus, Chromosomes condense and become visible.

In the cytoplasm, the spindle form

Metaphase

The copied chromosomes align in the middle of the spindle

Anaphase

Chromosomes seperate into two genetically identical groups and move to opposite sides of the spindle.

Telophase

Nuclear envelope form. The chromosomes begin to spread out and the spindle begins to break down

cytokinesis

The cells split into two daughter cells
