Cell Mitosis

During Mitosis one cell divides once to form two identical cells. The major purpose of mitosis is for growth and to replace worn out cells.

Mitosis has 4 stages:1. Prophase2. Metaphase3. Anaphase4. Telophase Remember PMAT!

Prophase

is the first phase of mitosis, the process that separates the duplicated genetic material carried in the nucleus of a parent cell into two identical daughter cells.

Metaphase

the second phase of mitosis, the process that separates duplicated genetic material carried in the nucleus of a parent cell into two identical daughter cells.

Anaphase

is the third phase of mitosis, the process that separates the duplicated genetic material carried in the nucleus of a parent cell into two identical daughter cells.

Telophase

the final phase of cell division, in which the chromatids or chromosomes move to opposite ends of the cell and two nuclei are formed.

Cytokinesis

the cytoplasmic division of a cell at the end of mitosis, bringing about the separation into two daughter cells.
