What is Mitosis

Mitosis is A type of cell division. It results in two daughter cells. When this happens they the daughter has the same number of chromosomes as the parent. This is usually tissue growth.

The 5 Stages of Mitosis

Interphase-Chromosomes are not visible and start to make a copy of itself.

Prophase- Copies of the Chromosomes fasten together, and the nucleus membrane disappears.

Metaphase- Chromosomes line up along the center

Anaphase- Chromosomes split apart and are pulled to opposites ends of cells.

Telophase-Chromosomes become hard to see. Cells split and 2 nucleus membranes form. (two daughter cells)
