Storyboard Text

  • Mitosis Introduction
  • Interphase
  • Prophase
  • In this process cells divide and create 2 new identical cells. There are four distinct stages starting with Interphase. The main stages are Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, and Telophase.
  • Metaphase
  • The first step of the phase is Interphase. During Interphase cells double in size. During this stage, the chromosomes aren't visible.
  • Anaphase
  • During prophase, chromosomes become visible. Also, during prophase, chromosomes seperate from each other. (The chromosomes scrunch, then double.)
  • Telophase
  • In Metaphase, the chromosomes are moved to the middle of the cell. Spindle fibers are also attached to either sides of the chromatids. The mitotic spindle is fully formed.
  • In Anaphase the spindle fibers begin to shorten and the chromatids begin to pull to either side of the cell. The cell wall begins to close(if the cell has one) Two centromeres come apart seperating the chromosomes.
  • In Telophase, chromatids are surrounded by a nuclear envelope. A plate develops, a cell wall encases the cell. (If there is a cell wall) Two new cells form and cytokinesis begins.
