The first stage of mitosis, when DNA condenses into chromosomes, and the nuclear membrane disappears.
The third stage of mitosis, when spindle fibers pull the chromatids apart to the opposite ends of the parent cell.
The final stage in mitosis, when new nuclear membranes form around the two groups of chromosomes in the parent cell; followed by cytokinesis.
