stages of mitosis

interphasse, prophase, metaphase, anaphase, telophase, and cytokinesis

Interphase is the phase of the cell cycle in which the cell spends and performs the majority of its time.


Prophase, is a stage of mitosis in which the chromatin condenses into double rod-shaped structures called chromosomes in which the chromatin becomes visible.


Metaphase is a stage of mitosis in the eukaryotic cell cycle in which chromosomes are at their most condensed and coiled stage



Anaphase, is the stage of mitosis or meiosis when chromosomes are split and the sister chromatids move to opposite poles of the cell.


Telophase, is the final stage in both meiosis and mitosis in a eukaryotic cell.


Cytokinesis from the Greek cyto- "cell" and kinesis is the process in which the cytoplasm of a single eukaryotic cell is divided to form two daughter cells. It usually initiates during the early stages of mitosis, and sometimes meiosis, splitting a mitotic cell in two, to ensure that chromosome number is maintained from one generation to the next.
