Chapter 3

3.3 Cont. Mitosis

Mitosis A stage of the cell cycle where a cell divides and splits into two identical daughter cells.
Stages of Mitosis Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, Telophase, and Cytokinesis
Prophase The nucleus breaks apart and is no longer visible. Chromatin has condensed and organized itself into chromosomes. Centrosomes begin to move part and spindle formation begins.
Metaphase The chromosomes become attached to a spindle fiber. Chromosomes line up at the middle of the cell.
Anaphase Chromosomes are pulled apart and moved towards the centromeres. When chromosomes are pulled apart they are referred to as sister chromatids.
Telophase The cell begins to form into two different cells. The nucleus begins to reform and the chromosomes will relax and unwind to form chromatin.
Cytokinesis Cytokinesis is not "true" stage of mitosis. Cytokinesis refers to the splitting of the cytoplasm and organelles between the two new cells.
Importance of Mitosis Mitosis allows our bodies to repair damaged tissues due to an injury and is why we grow during childhood.
