The life functions of the cell
This storyboard does not have a description.
Lets talk about the life of the cell! First lets start off with good old interphase. During this phase the DNA duplicates and carries out normal life activities and gets ready to form into Mitosis.
After interphase comes Prophase, which is the stage when the nucleus starts to disappear,the spindle fibers start to stretch, and most important the chromosomes form.
Spindle fiber chromosome, and centromere.
Next, we have metaphase. Metaphase is when the chromosomes line up across the middle of the cell, and the spindle fibers attach to the centromeres. If you think of it's like a slingshot attached to two rubber cords on each side.
Then comes anaphase. Anaphase is the process by which the chromosomes separate and are pulled to opposite sides.

Next comes Telophase. Telophase is the process by which the nuclear membrane forms around each group of chromosomes. Chromosomes unravel and cell membrane begins to pinch.
Lastly we have cytokinesis. This stage is when the cytoplasm splits and are contained with two identical cells also known as, daughter cells. Thank for joining me with studying the life of the cell !
