Interphase
Time period between cell divisions when the cell grows, DNA duplicates and preparation for mitosis occurs.
Mitosis
Division of the nucleus
Cytokinesis
Division of the cytoplasm and organelles
Somatic Cells
Type of cells that go through mitosis
Interphase
G1 / S / G2
Prophase
Nuclear membrane disappears / Chromatin condenses and thickens into chromosomes / Spindle fibers appear
Anaphase
The spindle fibers pull the chromatids apart and pull them to opposite poles. This gives rise to daughter chromosomes
Telophase
Nuclear membrane forms around each set of chromosomes / Spindle fibers disappear / Chromosomes return to there original, uncondensed chromatin form
Two Daughter Cells
End result of mitosis
Metaphase
Chromosomes line up along the equator in the middle of the cell
