Events of Mitosis

STUDY
PLAY
prophase
Chromatin coils and condenses, forming chromosomes.
anaphase
The chromosomes are v-shaped.
telophase
The nuclear envelope re-forms.
telophase
Chromosomes stop moving toward the poles.
metaphase
Chromosomes line up in the center of the cell.
prophase
The nuclear envelope fragments.
prophase
The mitotic spindle forms.
interphase
DNA synthesis occurs.
interphase
Centrioles replicate.
prophase
Chromosomes first appear to be duplex structures.
prophase, metaphase, and anaphase
Chromosomal centromeres are attached to the kinetochore fibers.
metaphase
Cleavage furrow forms.
Interphase, prophase, metaphase and anaphase
The nuclear envelope is absent.
Short, compact bodies easier to manipulate during mitosis rather than long, thin chromatin threads.
What is the physical advantage of the chromatin coiling and condensing to form short chromosomes at the onset of mitosis?
