|What are the steps in Mitosis? ( They have to be in order)||interphase,prophase, metaphase, anaphase, telophase, cytokinesis|
|What happens during interphase?||There are 46 chromosomes in each cell. The chromosomes copy and form "X" shapes so there are 96 individual chromosomes and 46 'X" shapes.|
|What happens during prophase?||The cell begins to divide and centrioles appear and begin to move to the opposite ends of the cell. The nuclear membrane dissolves and chromosomes become X's|
|What happens during metaphase?||The pairs of chromosomes line up in a single file line.|
|What happens during anaphase?||The pairs of chromosomes are separates and begin to move to opposite ends of the cell.|
|What happens during Telophase?||Two new nuclei form.
chromosomes appear as thread rather than rods
|What happens during Cytokinesis?||Cell membrane moves inward to create 2 daughter cells each with its own nucleus with identical chromosomes.|
