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.
After Telophase, the result is two seperate, genetically identical cells.
