The Process Of Mitosis


Mitosis is the term used to describe cell division for replication. The product
at the end of mitosis is two daughter cells both genetically identical to the
original (parent) cell. This process (mitosis) is used for growth and repair
within an organism (and also for asexual reproduction).

There are five main stages to mitosis, called Interphase, Prophase, Metaphase,
Anaphase and Telophase. Although the process has been divided up into these

their original length, now clearly visible when a stain is added. The centrioles
move to the opposite poles of the cell and small microtubules around the
centrioles become visible (called "Asters"). The nuclear membranes and nucleolus
disintegrate after passing their nucleic acids to certain pairs of chromatids.
Now a spindle forms, this is also made out of microtubules.

[A labelled diagram of the end of the Prophase stage of a cell here would be
great.]

Metaphase --------------------------------------- During this stage the
chromosomes move towards the equator of the spindle, attaching themselves
horizontally by the centromere to the spindle's filaments. The chromatids then
pull slightly away from each other at the centromere towards the opposite poles
of the cell.

[A labelled diagram of Metaphase here, and put a note next to it saying "Note
that some spindle fibres run from pole to pole while others from pole to
equator."]
