Storyboard Text

  • Hi there! I'm here to tell you about the first stage of cell division. Interphase, the first stage, is what a cell is in most of their life. Think of it like just doing what you normally do.
  • Prophase is when the DNA in the nucleus begins to condense and become chromosomes. The centrioles and spindle fibers start stretching across the cell.
  • In the stage of Metaphase, chromosomes align along the middle of the cell and spindle fibers attach to the centromere of the chromosome.
  • What am I supposed to do?
  • In Anaphase, the paired chromosomes separate and move to opposite sides of the cell.
  • In Telophase, the separated chromatids arrive at opposite poles of the cell, and new nuclear membranes form around them. The cell also begins to pinch in.
  • Finally, freedom!
  • After Telophase, the result is two seperate, genetically identical cells.
