Mitosis- By  Lewis, Liam, Tom and Dave

  

   
INTERPHASE
  • Chromatin not visible
  • DNA and centrioles have been replicated
PROPHASE

EARLY-

  • Nucleus and nucleolus has disappeared
  • Chromatin threads all visibleand are jumbled up
 

MIDDLE

  • Centrioles go to either pole of the cell
  • Chromatin strands line up next to each other (next to their twin)

 

LATE
  • Centrioles start to make spindle fibers
  • Chromatin strands join at centromere with their twin.

 

METAPHASE
  • Chromosomes align at equator of cell.
  • Chromosomes attach to spindle fibers by their centromeres

 

ANAPHASE
  • Centromeres split.
  • Chromatids travel along the spindle fibres to poles lead by the centromeres

 

TELOPHASE

EARLY

  • Spindle fibres disperse
  • Centrioles replicate
  • Nuclear membrane forms
  • Nuclei form

 

LATE
  • Nuclei drift away from each other
  • Daughter cells take shape

 

CYTOKINESIS
  • A cell wall now forms at the equator.
  • The cell now begins to split then two new daughter cells are formed.
