Mitosis
Cell Reproduction
Mitosis
The nucleus divides to
form two identical nuclei.
Cells divide in FIVE
stages.
5 Phases of Mitosis
  Interphase
  Prophase
  Metaphase
  Anaphase
  Telophase
INTERPHASE

Cell’s chromosomes
      duplicated
 The nucleolus is
  clearly visible
!     PROPHASE

     Chromatid pairs are
            visible
    Spindle Fiber begins to
             form
      Nuclear m...
Metaphase
Chromatid pairs line up in
    center of the cell.
  Spindle fiber connects
chromosomes to centrioles
ANAPHASE
 Chromosomes separate.
    Spindle fiber pulls
chormosomes towards the
        centrioles.
TELOPHASE
Cytoplasm begins to
     separate.
New nucleus forms.
Mitosis Ends

Both new identical cells
enter interphase.

  2. 2. Mitosis The nucleus divides to form two identical nuclei. Cells divide in FIVE stages.
  3. 3. 5 Phases of Mitosis Interphase Prophase Metaphase Anaphase Telophase
  4. 4. INTERPHASE Cell’s chromosomes duplicated The nucleolus is clearly visible
  5. 5. ! PROPHASE Chromatid pairs are visible Spindle Fiber begins to form Nuclear membrane breaking down.
  6. 6. Metaphase Chromatid pairs line up in center of the cell. Spindle fiber connects chromosomes to centrioles
  7. 7. ANAPHASE Chromosomes separate. Spindle fiber pulls chormosomes towards the centrioles.
