  • Cell Mambrane
  • Hi!
  • Welcome to the lab of cell division! Right now we are looking at a cell going through interphase. It is doing it's normal cell processes and replicating it's DNA.
  • DNA
  • Nucleus
  • Spinlde fibers
  • HH
  • Now it's in the stage of prophase. It looks like the nucleus is broken, the DNA is forming into chromosomes, and the centrioles' spinlde fibers are stretching. This little guy just went to the container store!
  • I just got organized!
  • Centriole
  • Fading nucleus
  • Chromosomes
  • Looks Like he's beginning to apply this 'organization'. He's in Metaphase. His chromosomes are in the middle of the cell, and the nucleus is gone. The spindle fibers are now attached to the chromosomes' centromeres.
  • H H
  • Now he's in anaphase! He is sawing his boxes in half! The chromosomes are now split into chromatides, and are being pulled to the cell's poles by the spindle fibers.
  • This should be fun!
  • < > < >
  • Chromatides
  • Now he's going through telephase. The chromatides have turned back into DNA, and the nuclei are re-forming. Also the cell membrane is pinching in and getting wider. Looks like he's starting to saw himself in half.
  • SSSS
  • New nuclei
  • SSSS
  • DNA again
  • This is going to hurt
  • SSSS
  • He, or they should I say, they, just went through cytokenesis. This cell just split in two, to make two identical fully functioning daughter cells! And we got here from sawing boxes and moving things!
  • Hi siss!
  • SSSS
