Cell Division


The division of the cells cytoplasm

Starts before end of mitosis

Ends after mitosis ends


Stages of Mitosis

Prophase, Asters formed in animal cells, Centrioles move away from eachother, Kinetochores attach to kinetochore fibers, Chromatin becomes coiled into chromosomes

Metaphase, Spindles fully develop

Anaphase, Chromatids seperate and move towards cell ends, Centromeres move apart


Occurs after Interphase


Stages of Interphase

Gap 1, Cell increases in size

Synthesis, DNA is synthesized

Gap 2, Cell synthesizes proteins and continues to grow in size


Chromosomes are duplicated, but in the form of chromatin

Bounded by a nuclear envelope

Occurs first in cell division
