Storyboard Text

  • During interphase, the cell grows. In the G1 portion of interphase, the cell produces protein so that the cell can grow. During the S portion, the cell copies its DNA. During the G2 portion, the cell replicates its organelles. 
  • INTERPHASE
  • ANAPHASE
  • I've been growing a lot recently. Everything seems normal.
  • During prophase, chromosomes become visible and the nucleolus as well as the nuclear envelope disappear. Doubled chromosomes appear as sister chromatids and can be seen under a light microscope.
  • PROPHASE
  • TELOPHASE
  • Ugh. I feel like my insides are doubling.
  • During metaphase, the chromosomes line up in the middle of the cell. Spindle fibres attach to the chromosomes, and the centrosomes move to opposite sides of the cell.
  • METAPHASE
  • CYTOKINESIS
  • I feel like all my organs are lined up in the middle of my body. 
  • During anaphase, newly formed daughter chromosomes are pulled apart by the spindle fibres, and the cell is elongated.
  • I don't look fat, do I?
  • During telophase, complete cell division starts to happen. Nuclear membrane starts to form and chromosomes begin to no longer be visible. The nucleolus reappears.
  • Is this a tumour?
  • Is this a tumour?
  • During cytokinesis, the now daughter cells are completely separated. Cytokinesis begins during telophase. Mitosis is complete.
  • I feel divided about this issue.
  • I feel divided about this issue.
