Mitotic Phase: And the creation of the daughter cells
Its good to finally be noticed.
NOOOOO! HELP US!
Bye, Bye, nuclear envelope and ...
Hello, Chromosomes and spindle fibers!
Let's meet in the middle.
Composed by Mitosis and Cytokinesis By: Paola Medina
You were just ANAther PHASE.
During prophase the nuclear envelope starts disintegrating, the spindle fibers emerge from the centrosomes, and the chromosomes condense and become visible.
Metaphase is the stage at which the chromosomes line up along the metaphase plate, while each spindle fiber attaches itself to a sister chromatid. The centrosomes are also located at opposite ends of the cells.
We MET A PHASE we all like. I just hope this lasts.
Once the cell reaches the stage of Anaphase, the chromatids are pulled apart - breaking the cohesin proteins that held them together - and pulled to opposie poles by the fibers.
It just wasn't meant to be.
The chromatids reach the opposite poles and condense, while a new nuclear envelope starts to form around them, creating two new nuclei. The spindle also starts to break down. Furthermore the cell starts to display a slight cleave as it elongates.
How dare you!
The cells divide at this phase resulting in the creation of two daughter cells.
