Prophase - the first stage of cell division, before metaphase, during which the chromosomes become visible as paired chromatids and the nuclear envelope disappears.
Metaphase - the second stage of cell division, between prophase and anaphase, during which the chromosomes become attached to the spindle fibers.
Telophase - the final phase of cell division, between anaphase and interphase, in which the chromatids or chromosomes move to opposite ends of the cell and two nuclei are formed.
Anaphase - the stage of mitotic cell division in which the chromosomes move away from one another to opposite poles of the spindle.
Interphase - the resting phase between successive mitotic divisions of a cell, or between the first and second divisions of mitosis.
Cytokinesis - the cytoplasmic division of a cell at the end of mitosis, bringing about the separation into two daughter cells.
Chromatids - each of the two threadlike strands into which a chromosome divides longitudinally during cell division. Each contains a double helix of DNA.
