Phases of Mitosis

Match the phase with a description.

Interphase - Before S Phase *DNA is long, thin, thread-like chromatin. *One pair of centrioles/centrosome.
Interphase - After S Phase *DNA has duplicated forming sister chromatids joined at the centrosome. *Centriole pair/centrosome has duplicated.
Mitosis - Prophase *DNA begins to thicken and condense. *Centriole pairs/centrosomes begin to migrate to opposite poles with spindle fibers forming between them. *Nuclear membrane and nucleolus beginning to dissolve.
Mitosis - Prometaphase *Centriole pairs/centrosome further moved towards opposite poles. *Nuclear membrane further dissolves and nucleolus is gone. *Spindle fibers attach to chromosomes and begin to move towards equator.
Mitosis - Metaphase *Chromosomes aligned along the equator. *Spindle fibers/mitotic spindle fully formed.
Mitosis - Anaphase *Spindle fibers shorten and pull apart sister chromatids and drag them to opposite poles. *The cell elongates. *Separated sister chromatids are now considered chromosomes.
Mitosis - Telophase *Nuclear membrane begins to form around the two sets of chromosomes. *Spindle fibers disassemble. *Cleavage furrow (animal cells) or cell plate (plant cells) form to separate the two daughter cells. This signals the beginning of cytokinesis.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
