Question: What are the phases of mitosis? Edit
Answer: The phases of mitosis are Interphase, Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase And Telophase.
Interphase - It is the non-mitotic part of a cell cycle. This part boasts 3 stages - G1, S and G2. During S phase, DNA is replicated.
Prophase - This is the first phase of mitosis. Chromosomes get condensed and become visible during this phase. Centrioles are formed and they move towards opposites 'poles'. Nuclear membrane is dissolved. Mitotic spindle (in case of plant cell) and centrioles ( in case of animal cell) are also formed in this phase. Spindle fibre from the centrioles get attached to every sister chromatid at kinetochore.
Metaphase - During this phase, the centrioles complete migration to poles and the chromosomes line up in the 'equator'
Anaphase - Spindles attached to the kinetochors start shortening and the exerts force on sister chromatids and they are pulled apart. Shortening of spindle fibres continues and pulls the chromatids to the opposite poles. As a result, each daughter cell receives identical chromosome sets.
Telophase - This is the last stage of mitosis. Chromosomes get decondensed at this phase. Nuclear envelope is formed. Cytokinesis is completed resulting in two daughter cells. Edit
