The Cell Cycle

Here is the Cell Cycle, people. -McGirl

Interphase
Before mitosis begins, chromosomes are copied. Each chromosome becomes two chromatids.
Prophase
Mitosis begins. Chromosomes condense from long strands into rodlike structures.
Metaphase
The nuclear membrane is dissolved. Paired chromatids align at the cell's equator.
Anaphase
The paired chromatids separate and move to opposite sides of the cell.
Telophase
A nuclear membrane forms around each set of chromosomes, and the chromosomes decondense. Mitosis is complete.
Cytokinesis
In a cell that lacks the cell wall, the cell pinches in two. In a cell that has a cell wall, a cell plate forms and separates the cells into two new cells.
