All about Splitting!
What is Mitosis?
Mitosis is The splitting or duplication of cells. They "mother" cell divides and creates a "daughter" cell. This duplication is how things in your body are repaired.
First Phase: Interphase
This phase is known as a "resting" phase, starting with a normal cell.
Second Phase: Prophase
The phase where chromosomes are becoming visible.
Third Phase: Pro metaphase
When the Barrier that encloses the nucleus breaks down
Fourth Phase: Metaphase
When Chromosomes become attached to fibers.
Fifth Phase: Anaphase
When chromosomes move away from the spindle.
Sixth Phase: Telophase
When the cell splits into two and "breaks" down the middle.
Why is Mitosis so important?
Mitosis is important because for one, it is how some organisms reproduce. Another reason is because it replaces damaged parts of the body. The last reason is because it is how the body grows and develops.
