  5. 5. Prophase <ul><li>The chromosomes, now called chromatids , form and pair up in the center of the nucleus. </li></ul><ul><li>A centromere connects the two halves. </li></ul><ul><li>In the cytoplasm spindle fibers begin to form. </li></ul><ul><li>The centrioles move to opposite sides of the cell, and the nuclear membrane breaks apart. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Metaphase <ul><li>The centromeres of the chromatid pairs are lined up in the center of the cell. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Anaphase <ul><li>Spindle fibers pull chromatids apart, separating each one from its duplicate. </li></ul><ul><li>The cell now has two identical sets of single chromosomes. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Telophase/ Cytokinesis <ul><li>Chromosomes reach opposite ends </li></ul><ul><li>Spindle fibers break into proteins. </li></ul><ul><li>A nuclear membrane forms around each set of chromosomes. </li></ul><ul><li>The furrow deepens & cell divides completely </li></ul>
