The nuclear membrane breaks down. The centrosomes and centrioles begin to move, and spindle fibers start to assemble. The duplicated chromosomes condense, and homologous chromosomes begin to pair up.
Spindle fibers align the homologous chromosomes along the cell equator. Each side of the equator had chromosomes from both parents.
The paired homologous chromosomes separate from each other and move toward opposite sides of the cell. Sister chromatids remain attached
The spindle fibers disassemble, and the cell undergoes cytokinesis.
The centrosomes and centrioles move to oppisite sides of the cell, and spindle fibers start to assemble.
Spindle fibers align the chromosomes along the cell equator.
Th sister chromatids are pulled apart from each other and move to opposite sides of the cell
The nuclear membranes form again around the chromosomes, the spindle fibers break apart, and the cell undergoes cytokinesis.
