  • Nuclear Membrane
  • Well, the cells in your body divide. This is called cell division. The first step in this process is called interphase. It is when the cell carries out normal activities.Towards the end, its DNA replicates.
  • Cell Membrane
  • DNA
  • Mom, how do people grow?
  • The next part of the cell cycle is prophase. The chromosomes, compacted DNA, form and spindle fibers begin to stretch across the cell. The nucleus, starts to disappear.
  • What happens next?
  • Now, the phase known as metaphase begins. The chromosomes I explained earlier, line up in the middle of the cell and the fibers attach to the center of the chromosomes.
  • What is the next step when a cell divides?
  • After metaphase comes anaphase. During anaphase, the chromatids of each chromosome separate into chromosomes and are pulled to the poles of the cell.
  • What happens after metaphase?
  • Following anaphase occurs telophase. The nuclear membrane forms around each group of chromosomes and the DNA returns back to a loose mass of strands. The membrane begins to pinch in on an animal cell.
  • What happens to the cell after anaphase?
  • The sixth and final phase is called cytokinesis. This is when the cytoplasm splits. The final product of cell division is two gentetically identical daughter cells.
  • What happens last?
