Stages of Mitosis

interphasse

  1. Interphase: is the phase of the cell cycle in which the cell spends and performs the majority of its time. Then, in preparation for cellular division, it increases in size.

prophase

prophase: the chromatin condenses into discrete chromosomes. The nuclear envelope breaks down and spindles form at opposite "poles" of the cell.

metaphase

Spindle fibers align the chromosomes along the middle of the cell nucleus. This line is referred to as the metaphase plate.

Anaphase

Anaphase: Sister chromatids separate, and the now-daughter chromosomes move to opposite poles of the cell.

Telophase

Telophase: is technically the final stage of mitosis

Cytokines's Mitosis occurs when the nucleus of the cell divides into two identical nuclei with the same number and type of chromosomes, followed by cytokinesis when the cytoplasm, for both plant and animal cells, divides, thus creating two daughter cells that are genetically equal and approximately identical in size.
