Mitosis-cell division that usually occurs in plant cells

Stages of Mitosis
-chro$oso$es have %een replicated %ut re$ain elongated and rela&ed 'ithin the
-centriole 'ithin the $icrotu%ule organi)ing center* have also %een replicated
-also +no'n as the resting stage
E#L, !O!"#SE
-chro$oso$es condense and shorten %eco$ing visi%le 'ith a $icroscope
-centrioles %egin to $ove apart
-spindle %egins to for$
L#TE !O!"#SE
-nuclear envelope %rea+s and the spindle $icrotu%ules invade the nuclear region
-spindle fi%ers attach to each chro$oso$e at its +inetochore
-other fi%ers e&tend fro$ each pole to the cells e-uator 'here their ends overlap
-spindle is fully for$ed
-+inetochore $icrotu%ules $ove the chro$oso$e to cell.s e-uator
-chro$atids separate at the centro$ere* %eco$ing independent chro$oso$es(
-+inetochore $icrotu%ules shorten* pulling one for$er chro$atid fro$ each
chro$oso$e to'ards each pole of the cell(
-at the sa$e ti$e* poles $ove farther apart
-cell $e$%rane are cleaving
-one co$plete set of chro$oso$es has reached each pole of the cell
-chro$oso$es rela& into their e&tended state
-spindle disappears and the nuclear envelopes %egin to refor$
-cytoplas$ is divided along the e-uator of the parent cell 'ith each daughter cell
receiving one nucleus and half of the original cytoplas$
-cleaving is al$ost co$plete(
