What is mitosis?
The Stages of Mitosis
Metaphase: During metaphase, the cell's chromosomes align themselves in the middle of the cell through a type of cellular "tug of war."
Anaphase: Anaphase begins when the duplicated centromeres of each pair of sister chromatids separate, and the now-daughter chromosomes begin moving toward opposite poles of the cell due to the action of the spindle.
Telophase: Telophase begins once the replicated, paired chromosomes have been separated and pulled to opposite sides, or poles, of the cell.
