The chromatids are now called chromosomes.
Anaphase ends when the chromosomes reach
the poles of the cell.

The division of cytoplasm after the mitotic


division of nucleus.

Chromosomes arrange randomly at the cell


equator. The centromeres of all the
chromosomes are lined up on the cell equator.

The spindle fibres disappear and a nuclear


membrane is re-formed to surround each set
of chromosomes. Mitosis process completed.
The centromere of each chromosome splits
and its chomatids are pulled to opposite poles
of the cell by the spindle threads.

Each chromosome shortens and thickens and


becomes visible as a pair of chromatids joined
at the centromere. Spindle threads emerge.

Spindle formation is complete. Metaphase


ends when the centromeres divide.

Chromosomes have reached the poles of the


cell. The chromosomes start to uncoil and
revert to extended state (chromatin) again.

Nuclear membrane disintegrates and


nucleolus disappears. Each apir of centrioles
then migrates to lie at the opposite poles of
the cell.
